Default Carbon Fiber Full Ball Bearing Control Horn System

This is a full ball bearing carbon fiber control horn system minus only the 4-40 pushrods.

I encourage you to read the listing to the end to digest how complete this system is compared to other aircraft designs on the market. This system features a ball bearing 4-40 clevis which is made with reinforced nylon that connects to your servo. This is included as standard. On the other end of the system features a 4-40 ball bearing reinforced nylon clevis which threads to the 4-40 carbon steel Phillips screws. The two included screws are 3/4in. and 1in to cover virtually any control surface thickness. Two screw sizes also allows for simple control throw deflection adjustment. If you require more control surface throw the smaller screw is best, and for less throw the 1in is the one to use.

This is the first carbon horn to feature a threaded control surface trim adjustment!

This system then features two individual CNC machined 100% carbon fiber 2x2 twill matte finished plates that are .5mm in thickness that sandwich your control surface. The carbon when combined with the control surfaces thickness adds an additional 1mm of total carbon reinforcement. This is usually all that's required for most models, however to allow for custom strength requirements you can add additional .5mm carbon plates for virtually unlimited strength (For example to make each of them 1mm in thickness you would need to purchase two additional plates. this would in turn add an additional 2mm of carbon reinforcement to the control surface its mounted to!). Simply align them, and glue them together for virtually unlimited strength possibilities!

This is also the first carbon fiber control horn that allows the modeler to increase strength for their specific aircraft.

This set was engineered with safety, and precision in mind. The ball bearing system offers a control system you can setup in your model, with peace of mind. It features zero play from the first flight, and years from the first flight. The pushrod clevises are screwed threw to attach to the ball bearing control surface clevis.

This means when assembling these in your model with Loctite (Loctite is mandatory when dealing with aircraft vibration. Please be safe, and use it with this system) on the nut virtually assures no pushrod control failures.

Mounting these to your model is as simple as drilling a 3/32 hole (using a slightly smaller hole, so the screw threads into your control surface), removing the covering from the area, applying a little epoxy to each plate, inserting the screw, and tightening the nut.

*The toothpicks are used as an option when softer woods are used for control surfaces. Simply drill, a hole inset the toothpicks in each of them, and CA them in place. Then sand them level with the control surface, and epoxy the carbon plates over them, so that when you install the nut, and compress the two plates together the wood doesn't indent!!*

$13.50 shipped per control horn system, or $35 for 3 shipped.

To check my feedback, here's my Ebay store

If you would like to purchase additional carbon fiber plates they are $1.75 a piece please message me on your required quantity.
