FWIW...I never use what is supplied with the models anyway (the one exception sometimes being threaded fuse pushrod couplers). They usually provide incorrect linkage lengths to boot.

Cutting some carbon rod to the precise length needed and attaching clevises is not hard. This is WRT conventional linkages...if we're talking LDS or something exotic, then the mfr should of course provide something.

I've built Supras and Xplorers. Never used the supplied rods or supplied wiring for the Supras. Most of the time I succeed in getting the servo installed with a horn that stays below the surface of the wing so I can replace any bubble covers with flat covers.

The wiring on the Perfection is pretty nice. I actually used it.

Is there a video showing how the lds system works? The pushrod connection on the control surface looks like it has almost no moment arm which would require a powerful servo and and a really strong hinge line.
