Re: Eliminate throttle and choke linkage

I don't have them on the web site because I'm not sure what my costs of materials and machine time will be. A lot of this will depend on volume so I'm trying to get an idea of what the demand will be. The PM's tell me a lot more about what people think of the idea. Everyone is more expressive and opinionated in PM's than on the open forum, with some outstanding exceptions

Re: Eliminate throttle and choke linkage

One of the many reasons I made this thing was because I was tired of replacing hogged out throttle arms which always result in an inconsistent idle. The best way IMO to minimize metal erosion due to vibration and wear is to use two dissimilar materials and increase the bearing surface as much as possible. That's why there is a 1/4" diameter metal shaft sliding between two pieces of nylon. It has held up well for the 50 odd flights I've put on mine. If it proves to be a problem I'll go to a larger shaft or shaft material and/or a different arm on the servo. All this will be retrofittable but I think the current set up will be fine.

I have one of these for sale that's never been mounted.
Email me at [email protected] and I'll send you a link to the site it's on.

I was really never interested in this. Linkage has always worked great for me and keeps the servo out of hostile environment.

The only issue I could see is if you have to turn the carbs sideways (like these are mounted) you couldn't tie the front carb to the back with the pushrod as is typically done. It would likely need 2 sets and do both carbs. Still would be cool.
Send me 2 sets and I will use one of my 200s as the guinea pig.
