I'm replacing very badly frayed kevlar thread pull-pulls in my 3.2meter fuse. I could have used flexible plastic pushrods, but I hate those even more than pull-pulls. And those would likely bind with the setup that's in there. I really don't like rehabbing planes that other people have built.

The trouble I'm having is connecting the dang things to the elevator bellcrank. I might just dremel out the entire side of the fuse/fin, just so I can get my fingers in there instead of fiddling with needle nose pliers.

Can you loop the cable through the hole in the bellcrank, and have both ends in the radio compartment where you have more room to work? Make a slipknot and slide it down until it self tightens at the bellcrank?

The next person that posts something here has to have coffee and donuts ready for me when I wake up.

Well I got a bit of a teaser of what's to come, it was 12-15mph average when I got there a little bumpy but when it turned on it was fun! All the planes I had flew and the Bullet got its first taste of some wind, and it really liked it !! Fast and agile, but it still wanted more.

Craig, I don't recall you being over weight the last time I saw you, but if Tom can't help I hear P90X works like a miracle.
