Thanks again Cougar, your a fountian of knowledge. This kind of stuff is probably thought of from the guys/gals that have owned a RTF, ARF and especially the ones building from a kit or pile of sticks.

Re: Hinges 101

I use Dubro pinned hinges and Robart Hinge points also when building. When using the Robarts, I simply use a piece of light spruce square stock to reinforce where the hinge point goes through, soak it with epoxy and insert the hinge point....have never had one pull out yet.

Any planes I purchase that come with the tailwheel wire installed directly into the rudder, get a Sullivan tailwheel assembly installed ASAP, there is just to much stress applied to the rudder, wood and hinges with the wire going directly in and will eventually fail.

You can fly Hitec or use the other "low tech" stuff!!
