I was going to install the E-flite Power 90 last night when I discovered the "X" mount for the motor had a crack in it. A strength test (technical term for trying to bend it with my fingers. ) proved to be the end of the mount as it broke into 2 pieces. I've ordered a new mount, so it's a waiting game now.
Probably a good time to decide what I am going to do about control linkages for the elevators and rudder. The Gold-n-Rod control rods I have look too big to put into this plane.
I am considering installing the pul-pull cables, but I don't have alot of experience with them.
Can anyone comment on the reliability of a pull-pull system? I'm worried about these things becoming slack or hung up in the fuselage during midflight.

Cheers,
Peter
