HK500GT Rudder Control Rod

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

I had to cut the tail boom by 1/8" on my HK500GT because the belt was too tight causing stripped tail gears. Now the rudder control rod is too long, and I can't move the rudder servo any closer to the body. Any tips on shortening (I would thread tool) or replacing with shorter rod (do you know source?)

Take 1/16th off each end of the control rod.

That's what I will be doing with my CX500SE build, there's enough thread on the rod to accomodate this.
ohhh the bank account will never be the same HK500GTTT and CX500SEv2 in build
