Shiny nipples and cf on a foamy??
That come in the kit?
What size are those??
There are only two in the kit. One pictured is like a M2 thread to I believe a 2mm carbon rod for elevator. Other is m2 to a 1mm carbon rod for the rudder. Both are made of brass.
Twisted sells replacements, but of course are quite expensive. I've ordered other stuff from Flight Comp, and found they carry these small clevises and shiny nipples for a better price/quantity. Search: 10 results found for "clevis*"

Yeah I got four flight on it. Needs some more tweaking to the radio but it’s getting close. Also needs more power. I put a hacker A2020 on it which should be plenty but the props I used are just some gemfan 10x4.5 slow flys. I feel like the prop is flexing and flattening out under heavy load so pull out of a hover is anemic. Going to order some apc style that are like 11x5 and I think I should be good.

We all like cheap props, but there's a sizeable difference in performance between the old slow-fly style and the new APC SF 3D props. These seem to be a cross between an older slow fly and a regular APC E-style. I run the 11x4.6 3D SF on my Revolto, with a Supertigre .10, and performance is great. I've used some GWS 10x6DD in a pinch, and though it's close, the APC's are better. YMMV APC-Landing Products 11 x 4.6 Slow Flyer Propeller | Tower Hobbies

Thanks. I tried a 11x5.5 APC today and power was better but started seeing other issues like in the middle of a crankshaft the motor stopping and esc going into programming mode. Talking with Hooks I think the old style APC electric prop may be a bit to heavy for this motor. I'm thinking though that the Hacker may just not quite be enough for what we call bro power. Does fly it well just not ballistic out of hover which can be seen at the end of that video a posted.

Hacker A2020. Specs say 1022 Kv.
Based on your comments, I think that a Hacker 2020 is simply too small for that plane. A motor rated for 19 amps and 210 watts max just isn't going to let a Revolto fly the way it's supposed to.

Notice the specs on the Super Tigre .10 that wyo69cowboy and I are both using in our Revoltos are maxed at 33 amps and 370 watts. That's a huge difference.

Yes I was noticing that earlier. I might order the park 450 from value hobbies. It’s specs show 327 watts on a 11x5 prop so that should be more in line.

Oh also as for the servos so far I haven’t noticed any issues with centering on any of them. Hopefully it stays that way.

Did you do the trim button test with them?

Yes I did. Ailerons and elevators where spot on. Rudder servo did always vary 1-2 clicks per direction. Set to extra fine as suggested as well.

That's good news! Maybe Straightup had the non-digital TowerPro MG90 servos?

I don't remember. I just remember how awful they were. TriFlyer flew it also in its bad state..
I'm glad Chris is having good luck with his, and is having fun with his Revolto (y)(y)
