I Am Currently building my XL 173 wings with the internal rudder hornand was wondering if it seam like a bad idea to any on els that they use 3/16nylo flow tubing in the wing. It Could not be replaced if needed with out major work to the wing. I know that the rudder is not used as much as a standard configured plane,there by less wear . But even if with that in mind I think I would still like to be ableto replace it if need be. I was thinking of putting the nylo flow tubing in side a lager Dai Plastic tubing 3/8 maybe even 5/16 that way I could replace the 3/16 tubing rather easily ,With out distruction to the wing. The only down side I can think of is maybe 1/4 lb in weight and couple of dollars . Any thought on thisThanks Ron NeedhamSee you all at the dinner.
