Hello All.

On my mxsr, as recomended the pull pull wire are installed criss crossing... meaning left elev. on right side of servo arm and vise versa. now where wires comes into an X. they are touching each others.

Question, will this cause interferences on the 2.4 receiver ??? If yes , any solutions ?

Re: pull pull wire question.

I usually run the cables through a length of yellow inner nyrod. Also makes it easy to thread the cables through the fuse.
Once the cables are tensioned (not too tight!) I glue and zip tie the nyrod to a convenient bulkhead or cross beam.

Re: pull pull wire question.

Or just criss cross your wires and don't worry about it. I've never had an issue.

Re: pull pull wire question.

I have the 50CC MXSR, with crossed wires. I've never had issues. If you're worried about chaffing, on the rudder servo horn, you could put a couple of washers under the swivel ball link to raise one wire a few mm's.

Re: pull pull wire question.

You can use this pull pull cable:


It is Stainless Steel Nylon coated cable - also, check out the Secraft Pull Pull fittings - this setup is the best pull pull setup I've seen. Very easy to adjust and tighten:

Secraft Easy Couplers:

Secraft Wire Tensioners:

Also, if you don't want to use metal cable - you could try Nylon coated Kevlar:

Check out the Thunder Hangar Blog!!

Re: pull pull wire question.

No issue. Connect one side to the underside of the servo horn and the other to the top side of the servo horn.I have had many 2.4 spektrum set ups this way no issues. With older FM it could be an issue. Use coated wire. Fishings tackle stores sell good quality thin strong coated steel tracer.
