spoiler mechanism

Anyone care to take a picture of their spoiler mechanics? I am trying to figure out how it's best done in a Ava

Hi, Larry. Does the Ava have both flaps and ailerons? If so, one doesn't need spoilers.

Larry,
There is a photo of a typical spoiler set-up in this AVA article.

Here's the setup om my Hyper AVA (Kennedy Longhorn). No 'mechinism' is a good mechinisim. Music wire torsion spring to close spoilers. Extended servo arm cobbled up on Hyperion DS09 servo in servo frame. Each spoiler is on a separate channel for easy adjustment

Thanks guys. I was over thinking it! Is the spring like a pull wire system ?

P's I have the original mini ava with no ailerons or flaps. I just got it second hand but new unbuilt kit.

It looks lovely not looking forward to cutting it's nose off to fit a firewall.
