Improved Spoiler Geometry

Link to Ray DeNoble's RC Groups thread on "Spoiler Construction".
It has several different methods for simple spoiler actuation hook up.
This will probably make spoiler construction very easy for you.

Improved Spoiler Geometry

I have been installing spoilers in sailplanes since 1971 and have actuated them with torque rods, push rods, servos in the wing and pull strings. In recent years, I have gone back to pull strings because they are easier to install and simpler to adjust. Several years ago, I posted a thread on my spoiler installation.
