    Desperately needed...

    Post  Tom(ADMIN) on Thu Aug 15, 2013 8:34 am

    I think you'd call it a rear dive plane yoke? Whatever it's called, I'm in need of one for the Skipjack.

    And don't say 'make one'...I spent ages yesterday trying to bend up pieces of wire, but I just don't have the strength in my hands and fingers any more to do so.

    Anybody got one of these laying around?

    I don't have one Richard I am afraid
    I intended to acquire a large brass washer
    Open the centre up and cut it to form the yoke and solder the
    Rods directly to it
    Would that be easier than bending it??

    That's a possibility, something I hadn't thought of. I did manage to make one from 1/16" brass wire(nice and soft, and reasonably easy to bend), but I'm not too sure if it would be strong enough. Being brass, I could solder a horn directly to it, then attach the control rod to it with the usual plastic clevis.

    Hold what you're doing. Send me your address and I'll forward you a proper fittings kit for this project.
