Control Horns


Go thru all the film with your iron.

There are two types of ball links. One has an integrated pedestal (top ball link in pic) and the other has 2 spacers (bottom ball link). Use bottom ball link for horns and top ball link for servo.

Preassemble the control horns with ball link attached and scuff the surface of the legs.

Test fit and cut out the film for the control horn base

Apply epoxy on surface and the legs of the control horns

Install the horns (keep ball link on) and wipe excess epoxy away
