Hi Folks,
Does anyone know where I could acquire plans for control rod aileron system on a Laser?
Thank you,

The 2 place Laser 2300 plans have pushrod ailerons and setback hinged, Super Stinker style ailerons.

Here's a shot of a Laser cockpit with the pushrod linkage.

Thank you Dave. This gives me some ideas on how to get away from the torque tube system. I need to find a Laser or something similar in North Carolina to take notes on.
