Description

This pushrod set consists of a 1.5 mm carbon rod running in a 3 mm outside diameter Low friction rigid plastic tube. This excellent quality pushrod set is long and strong enough for many types of models, and for a multitude of engineering uses.

This type of inner rod and outer tube is sometimes called a Bowden Cable. It is important that the ends of the 3 mm outer tube are secured to the structure. It is even better if the complete outer tube run is glued in place. This can be achieved in tailbooms by temporarily fitting a piano wire inner rod and clamping the tube to the boom with magnets. Then liberally dribble in CA unto the upended boom, until the CA appears at the other end of the run.

Sold singly - one inner rod and one outer tube per set.

Hyperflight carbon push rods

Excellent service as usual.
Have now settled on these rods as standard for tail grous on all sports gliders to c.2M. 1.5mm is probably OK too for lightly built floaters to 3M, but by then, I'd probably go to 1.8mm. Aligned correctly they produce super smooth, slop free linkages.

Very pleased with this product, I'm using for a home built 3 meter sailplane,. Shipping from the UK to USA was reasonable and quick. Email inquiries were promptly answered. Thanks Neil!
