I got this from Grayson http://www.graysonhobby.com/catalog/scratch-builder-hardware-pack-p-429.html Is there a way to shorten two of the rods so I can do one servo for the ailerons on the E300S?

Yeah just simply cut them... You will have to use a real thin drill bit to make the control horn holes wider. If you are using daves motor mount method you will also need to use the same bit on the motor mount to widen the holes

Okay thanks! If I cut them, how do they go back together?

Cut them to size... You get 4 in one package. You run out, use a wire clothes hanger

When you cut them you may damage the threads so they will not screw into the clevis. A way around that is to thread them into and through the clevis first, then make the cut on the open side of the clevis and back the rod out to the right length. If you can't make that work then drill out the threaded part of the clevis and epoxy the rod in, but you will lose the adjustability..

I have a pile of those types of rods and I don't even use them, piano wire and some carbon or bamboo works great...I love the Dubro connectors, the really small ones...I just put a z bend on the control surface end and put a straight piano wire through the dubro on the servo arm...

That's a nice little kit for scratch builders but I don't use the nylon control rod ends. They may be ok for a small light plane, but I had a pin break off on one of them on one of my glow planes. Fortunately I found it while I was re-adjusting my elevator throw. The pin was just hanging and ready to break. If I had flown the plane, It probably would have broke and I would have crashed the plane. There's not much you can do without elevator control. After that, I just don't use them any more on anything.

Exactally Dan, that's what I do. I use needle nose pliers to elp ben the S in the control rod.
