This pushrod set consists of a 2 mm carbon rod running in a 4 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 4 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.

If the pizza box option is shown these can be sent by coiling into a pizza type box, or they can be kept straight and sent in a 1.5 m long postal tube at extra cost. If sent coiled they will straighten out well. Please remove from the pizza box with care!
These can be only be sent in a 1.5m long postal tube. This increases the shipping cost but is unavoidable as the 2 mm rod is too rigid to be coiled into a pizza box.
