Original rod and horn. Note that i was not worried about the soldered connection, it apperared to be fine. It was the twist (missing rigidity) of the rod which allows low frequency vibration to a high degree.
Push-pull wire mechanism.
Steel rod also offers only a limited way to connect the elevator, which is a weak point.
New torque tube consisting of 8/6mm elox aluminum tube. It has an enormous torque capability and is low weight. In addition I drilled 2x2 5mm wholes to connect the carbon tube spars.
The control horn construction is a dual plate which is epoxied to the tube. in the middle I have fitted a 3mm carbon rod to better support any torque stress from the horns to the tube.
Super rigid connection between both elevators. Extremely precise. This reduces vibration at high speeds and significantly increases high speed pitch accuracy.
Control horns finally assembled.
