Controls
My Controls that came with my KR2, were a very poor design. I got a set of Control plans from a mate with a complete KR2, and mate a new set of sh Rod Controls which have been approved by the Australian Dept, CASA.

The controls were very flexable and poor design. They had a solid rod torsion bar that went from the centre stick to the right fuse side, then back through the rear spar, then back via a solid rod bar to the centre again, then a small aluinium pushrod. Yuck!!!!!

This control unit was designed in Australia and certified by CASA as an approved mod. The unit is flying in a number of KR 2's
