Linkage systems, including the servo, servo arm, pushrod and control horn, are often overlooked, but they are the keys to smooth, strong, equal control-surface deflections. Take the time to install the linkages properly and securely to guarantee control surfaces that work properly […]

While flying his Sopwith “Doghouse” Snoopy would battle Red Baron and then later ease his imaginary, bullet-hole-ridden WW I fighter back onto the ground. Personally, I really like Snoopy, but I […]
