Right in the middle of the build i striped the threads on the ball on the aileron horn. They were sent out quick smartly.
Review by: JOHN RUPPAileron Horns
I checked the fit of the ball in horns before installing in wing and all seemed well, But when assembling model on very first try I stripped thread on one ball and horn. Long story short I was lucky to be able to run a short bottoming tap into the one horn and save it. I ordered two more horns just for future just as a precaution. When I received the new horns I promptly ran a 3mm tap through them. The tap actually took out a fair amount of material. I would suggest that all builders tap horns first, because it is very difficult to do so later. Also noticed on Vladimir's web site replacement ball has changed to a brass ball with steel threads. I suspect others have had similar problem,and Vladimir's has made some changes. Hope this will help others.
