RDS MISSION: "To make wings of RC aircraft clean, stealthy, more beautiful and without the parasitic drag of external hardware, to perform at their maximum aerodynamic potential". Review The Logic of RDS.

 

MECHANICS: A molded “Coupler” fastens to the output gear. A “Drive Shaft” with end bent extends into a “Pocket” in the hinged surface. As the servo rotates, the surface deflects. G2 parts are available from modeler-machinist Walt Dimick, dba IRF Machine Works, Inc.

Do an installation sticking to these very detailed instructions and it will become routine like everything else you once didn’t know how to do. The first drawing shows installation in a typical ARF wing.  It would be more convenient if the opening extended a bit beyond the coupler, something to anticipate in future ARF’s made with RDS installation in mind. Mounting servos between rails makes it easy to disconnect coupler from servo or shaft from coupler by sliding them apart ”.
