Replacing the metric plastic clevis


The stock plastic clevis that comes with the Night Radian and many other Horizon models has a weak “axle” that will bend and break when you try and insert it into another control horn hole. If you make the hole bigger and insert the axle into the hole and secure it with the rubber tubing it will work but if the hole is oversize then you will get slop in the elevator, rudder, aileron control. If the axle breaks, separates, and falls away you will have no control. In the case of no elevator you most likely will crash. Dubro recognized this poor design and has a metric plastic clevis that will fit the 1.3-1.5 threaded rod and has a larger and stronger axle. You will have to drill out the control horn holes for the Dubro clevis to fit but it works great and is a great replacement. Here is the link to the part:
