Found it at the local hobby shop I guess it's called triple rod connector!

Or you could use a single terminal block taken for a terminal strip.

Two wires in one end, one wire in the other, overlap in the middle so both screws grip.

I thought about this but cant find one thats small enough for the foamy wire.

I don't know if this idea is any good for your set up.I found apiece of alu tube which would just accept the two rods when slightly flattened,epoxy and crimped tight.At the single end I epoxied a carbon rod and crimped the tube either side.Heat shrink to tidy up.I've given it a few hard tugs,seems strong enough.

I've used wheel collars in the past. Worked ok.

Thanks for all the help gents.
Here's what i did. i didnt like the factory /oem elevator configuration of my Zero aircraft. It was causing uneven elevator throws.

Ah... Exactly what I was looking for as well. Any idea where I could get one of these triple rod connectors from the states? I've tried looking at Tower, Horizon and Hobby King. None of the major online retailers carry this type of rod connector.
