Team Legit's new Advanced Carbon Control Rods are stiffer, lighter, stronger and more direct than our previous sets. A carefully crafted cocktail of components is mixed from Europe, the USA and Asia to take your wing to the next level of control precision. We've selected this set to offer zero-slop and maximum rigidity.
Included are both ball links and aluminum clevises for connecting to your servo arms. The best choice will depend on your style of servo arm. All included screws are metric hex.
Above, a Medium rod set is shown installed on a Ritewing Mini Drak
Available in Small, Medium and Large diameters for various wing sizes and loads.
Various styles of aircraft will have different needs for size of control rod kit. The "size" refers to the weight, rigidity and strength offered by the kit. All kits include generous lengths of tube for typical control runs. A 48" floaty park flyer might do best with the Small kit for low weight, while a 32" combat wing might want the Large kit for maximum durability.
A good general indicator of appropriate rod kit size, however, is the size and power of servos being used. The chart below is a guide.
