Any tips for a Control horn and back plate on a tapered surface? The mounting screws are 30mm long and i want to get them straight.

My tip is to make a control horn from G10 and slot the control surface to fit it then glue in place. I've tried installing horns with screws on tapered surfaces and its not a whole lot of fun, to say the least.

The Du-Bro adjustable horn is a good alternative unless you have your heart set on the multiple screw backplates. https://www.dubro.com/collections/co...e-control-horn
I see this thread is 6 weeks old so you've probably already moved on.

Always a challenge,, what I do is drill a hole part way from each side to get the first screw lined up,, tighten the horn and plate just tight enough to hold in place,,, then continue the remaining holes drilling both ways to align,,'

I too prefer the glue in horns,, hate seeing the back plate if I can help it,, several people are selling them

good luck
