Wow Awesom Hinge System !!!!!

I have been thinking about how to make a rotory hinge that is direct drive and I think this is it ;use a mini 1/36 scale out drive shaft from Losi and attach the cup that recives the dog bone to the hinge tube you can lengthen the dog bone and it can then be attached to the servo as direct drive! If anyone wants to know whats going on inside my head give me a call 970 640 4759 Pete

Hey Pete,

Sounds good in the right application. We have some scale sailplanes with rudder set up that way, particularly a large Fox. Rudder on the bottom in the tail cone. Works perfectly, easy to service and absolutely no slop at all. Weight back there doesn't matter within reason.
