Hello gents.... I have been building models for almost heck what almost, first "chuckie" I built 50 years ago... never used any threadlock find it very hard to loosen fasteners at a later taime.... especially around control surface hardware that constantly needs one or other adjustment.... What I found works the best and even has an aplicator brush..... NAILPOLISH..... after you have torqued the fasteners with the brush apply a drop of nailpolish over the nut or head of the fastener. Works perfect and you don't need pair of vicegrips to loosen it... (just my humble two cents... or at my age probably half cent.... lol cheers all
There are different levels of strength based on aplication. I've always used the Blue Loctite since its ment to be serviceable. The red stuff is for non-servicable parts, and if you read the instructions on the back, they say you need heat to release the glue, like useing a tourch.
i use the same but have no problem whit it.
but i have heard that this can fal off, i was recomended to buy Pushrod Snap Connectors 2mm (5pack) instead.
but u can use thread lock to make sure it wont fal off.
I have been this hobby for well over 3 years and everyday there is something new to be learned.My projects are several scratch builds. However, i would like to get into building a quadcopter. But i am not sure of which circuit board works best for the size build quad or motor.
the threaded end goes through the control horn (opposite end of the push rod from the servo). The push rod passes through the hole on the side. The grub screw on the end holds the push rod in place when the control surface is lined up
It is an adjustable connector between pushrod or bowden cable and servo arm. You may need to drill out small servo arms to fit snugly. Don't forget thread lock or cyano on thumb nut when fitted. Not supplied with small allen key for grub screw clamp.
The description is not the best. These are designed to be strong enough for 60/10cc I/C planes and so can be a bit of an overkill on small electrics however they work well. You will need to ream out a hole 2mm diameter in the horn. I find a tapered needle file is best to get a perfect fit, not too tight and not too loose. Don't forget a tiny drop of cyano on the thumbscrew when you are happy with the operation. You will need a small allen key for the grub screw.
you could use these on the hobbyking servos but u would have to use them on a servo arm that has a hole around 2mm wide. i wouldnt recommend using these on micro servos but standard size servos should be fine.
The hole diameter for your push rod allows for 1.8mm wire to pass through. I guess it is 2mm. As for the diameter of the screws, I am not sure what you mean. The heads are resonably large. Larger than they need to be. But I suppose it makes it easier for those of us blessed with large thumbs! I find I need to drill out my servo arm just a little to allow the thread to fit through. You absolutely MUST use threadlocker or CA when done.
Yes. You will need to slightly enlarge the hole in the servo arm. Alternatively, these stoppers can be attached to your control horn enabling you to adjust from the control surface. A z-bend can be made to fit to the servo. Either way is fine. Adjustment is really precise. I have used these stoppers on the the hxt900 and I use a fine drill bit in my fingers to make the holes larger.
Yes I use them on all my aircraft without weight limits or speed, just adapt the reference on the one hand and create a Z on the other hand make small hole which receives the stopper arm of the servant.
There is no such thing as credit any more for answering questions. People who answer questions for free are true hobbyists and just wish to help people. Perhaps you never received any credit because your answers weren't chosen. Goodbye.
A few days ago I received an email assuring me of supply in the future. I had asked for an indication of ETA but was advised they could not be more specific than to say sometime in the next three months. These items are a very good product in their price range and HobbyKing is doing well to provide them to customers. I would recommend them anytime. But I would like HobbyKing to consider the value of giving good quality information about supply times. How about adding a service whereby customers can purchase backorder items in advance AND NOT PAY POSTAGE - instead hold items when they do arriveto be included in the customer's subsequent order and then posted out. We do need a solution to the problem of pre-paid orders being held up for over a quarter of a year pending the late arrival of one small item.
suspect HK refuse to order when demand <100s, the MOQ of this item perhaps 1000s. C'mon guess I am sure you WILL NEED this item in so many projects. Pls help out suckers like me who have to wait > 20days. The bonus is, you will get it much faster than us.
