Aileron Push Pull Tube Lengths ?

Postby Mike Balzer » Sun May 27, 2012 10:14 am

I am about to build the large and small Aileron push pull tubes. Before I cut them just want to know if they should be cut 1/8 or 1/4 longer.

I just want to check with other builders to see if VANS indicated length is good to go or if builders wished they would have gone a little longer.

Thank you.

Mike,

Just rigged mine up and everything was just fine. The standard length works out just fine. Build it to the plans, MAN!

Remember, it isn't all about length.

I have never had any complaints!
