Single servo aileron connections can be done the wrong way or the DUBRO way. The Aileron Connector is a sturdy and adjustable way to setup your single-servo aileron where you need to use multiple lengths of push rods. Here’s a few points to keep in mind.
- Aileron Connector Ball Link (SKU 183) ideally is used in conjunction with a single servo and bellcranks (SKUs 167 and 851). Primarily consider this option if you do not have a single rod long enough to run from one bellcrank to the other.
- Do NOT drill out E-Z Connectors to make them larger for two push rods. The E-Z connectors are not engineered to work this way and will eventually, over time, fail.
Generally, setup needs to be done while assembling the model. The threaded rod ends are soldered to your push rods. See DU-BRO 101 post onThreaded Rods and Couplers for instructions on how to do this.
- Reference the image on the back of the product card as a reminder during assembly.
- After basic assembly, make fine adjustments to the Aileron Connector push rods to try and get the same amount of travel on both of your bellcranks.
- While making fine adjustments, ensure that there is no binding during operation of the servo.
