Re: Quick Disconnect for Rudder Cables

Jay Scheevel

Guess I should’ve said some people use a bell crank (like me)… Others just put a disconnect in each side’s cable. That’s simpler and lighter. I’m sure someone with that setup will send you details.

Most people have some sort of bell crank mounted in the tail cone. Here’s a detail of mine outer holes are where the cables going forward to the rudder pedals mount with a thimble/shackle and an AN3 bolt on each side.

I have found ways for electrical disconnect at the tail seam but what about rudder cables? How have you all solved that? Do the pedal connectors come off for a quick connection at the tail seam?

Love building planes almost as much as flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
