Yes please both Biplane guy - I have a hand-drawn diagram for the Curtiss Pusher I made (I could take a pic and post it if you want a good laugh) - it would be great to confirm its correctness - do you want to post a pic of the diagrams ? - or email them to me ? - if email, I will ask James to give you my email address ...

LW, do you want a diagram for the Curtiss pusher or one for the DR-1? What I'm doing is a simplified aileron control on the DR-1. Fokker used four cables looped through multiple pulleys to move the ailerons (not worth the effort on a model this size when you won't be able to see and appreciate it after the model is covered.) I have diagrams for both aircraft if you want them.

Biplane Guy - is there a link to a good schematic diagram that shows how the cockpit controls work and how they link up to the control horns? I am stumped - it took me forever to figure it out for the Curtiss Pusher ...

The pulleys are glued to the brass shaft which turns free in brass bushings (grommets).

aileron pulleys in top wing

Thanks for the idea Biplane Guy - very clean and functional!

Lastwoodsman, here's what I came up with. The nylon washers are DU-BRO Cat. No. 323 #4 flat washers. The brass ferrule, small metal washer, and screw are parts from a DU-BRO Cat. No. 114 Small Servo Mounting Hardware kit. I had originally planned to make the pulleys from discs punched from a styrene sheet stock but this simplified things.

aileron pulleys

BPGuy - I'm looking forward to seeing how you build those little pulleys and mounting brackets - I need to make them for my Curtiss Pusher ...

Nice. I did this twice. Never again!

Impressive.,I've wanted to try this,but never had the guts.

This was the easy part. Now I have to make the little-bitty pulleys to fit inside the fuselage and upper wing for the aileron controls. Hope to have all the control surfaces working from the cockpit.
