Comments of this type of leadout arraignment Testor45

Thinking about using it on my Cox Black Widow reproduction.  I like the clean look of it but have never flown an airplane using it

Position of the guide with respect to the bell crank etc.?  Difference will be reproduction bell crank and guide will be under the wing.  

The Testor's Fly-em's series use this single guide.

Thanks

All I can say is that I had a similar Testors Fly Em' plane years ago, only the black one, with that arrangement, and it did fly, I just couldn't! Cannot see why it would not work for you in your design. And heck, they made them for a while like that, so it must have worked.

My Cox Cosmic Wind has that set-up.. (naturally; having been a Testors design originally) It was intended for the Dacron thread/flying lines to be tied directly to the bellcrank arms. This worked/works fine.. because there are no line-connectors to snag. You need a dedicated handle for the model though. I chose to make a pair of solid lead-outs but kept them "short" so-as not to snag. The small Luxon type line-connectors fit through the guide.

Well roddie! Isn't that just a neat design. When I had mine, I also had teh same handle, as well have seen them around, but had never known why the slot in it. Now I know! Thanks.

Thanks all. If I decide on this type of lead-out guide I would have to use Dacron, but I prefer music wire so would have to go to the standard two hole guide.

I guess I could use Ken's method of hanging it vertically to determine proper positioning if I use the one hole system. Guess elevator being elevator flying characteristic would not change..........

Bob,

I only tried solid lead out wire once - and that was once too often! That stuff bends too easy just handling the airplane and can only be straightened out a few times before the kinks begin to bind in the lead out guides!

I have used all three types over the years Bill, Dacron, stranded steel, and music wire - might have even resorted to just string in my younger days. But a few years back i switched over to all music wire. I think it offers a cleaner look and so far I haven't noticed an inclination to kink or bind in the guides. Did you use high tensile strength music wire?

Bob,

Never thought to ask?

May have been included in a kit, or purchased at a local hobby shop (as we still had quite a few back then in the St. Louis MO area). I've long since forgotten how nice it was to have my choice of shops to browse!

Amen to that Bill.

We lost Hobby Town locally where I purchased a lot of things. One "Hobby Hutt" hangs on, but not much of a selection. R/C cars mostly.
