Heavy duty linkages/cleavises/hardware


What do you all recommend for hardware for a giant scale ship? I am not quite satisfied with the stock hardware supplied for my Top Flite giant...

EF and 3DHS both use Dubro 4-40 hardware for their 50CC and up GS planes.

Hard to beat their swivel ball links, especially.
I've seen some cheap 'hard plastic' knockoffs cracked... and would imagine more than a few crashes have happened that way.

Do a search on "removable rudder" on the 88" EF thread or 89" Slick thread and I'm sure you will find some examples. Bascially you remove the hinge pin's and use piano wire instead.
