Question
Where can I buy pushrods and housings???

Hi,

I have seen in the past online vendors who sell pushrod wire and Teflon housings to suit, but as always it was at a time when I wasn't really looking for them, BUT now I need to get some to finish my DLG (the ones for my model are too tight due me using shrink tubing over the tubes, but luckily not glue in yet).

Can anybody clue me in where I can get the above items?

Cheers
Glen

Also tailboom.com has Bondable Teflon tubing in all kinds of sizes, as well as stretching instructions to minimize weight and adjust diameter to your specific requirements.

Like James, I find ASK at RCBuilder to be a good source (I just received three sets), also Oleg Golovidov at www.olgol.com sells the carbon push rods in teflon. I use Oleg's and ASK's pretty much interchangeably.

If you're planning to run the pushrods inside the boom/fuse, using magnets to locate and secure them while the CA is curing, then make sure that the rods are ferromagnetic. If you're going with ASK's kit, then verify that his stainless rods respond to magnets. I like to buy 17-7wire from McMasterCarr, since it's available in extended lengths, i.e. for rudder pushrods.
