Review by: David VReceived but not installed
The push rods were posted coiled/looped in a "pizza box" but once removed from the box returned to perfectly straight. As usual, most vendors could learn from Neil's awesome customer service.

Light, rigid and nicely friction free, but keep checking during the install, as very little cable bend required to start binding. Need good long slots in the fuselage exit point.
Exact length wire fittings for rudder and elevator are tricky, so I replaced some 0.3mm wire cables in a DLG kit with these, so I could add end fittings and adjust the length. As not much end space for the standard fittings, I bent a couple of short pieces of wire and whipped to the side of the rod end with fine sewing thread. Slid the wire for exact length then thread soaked in superglue.
