Connecting your Miniature Transmitters


A Drophead (shown here with an FM-05) makes a secure and flexible connection to your fiberglass push rod. The Drophead articulates in any direction to help your transmitter negotiate bends. Dropheads are available to fit 3/16” rod (12-24 thread) or 1/4” rod (5/16-18 thread).

A Dropcap (shown with an FN-10) articulates in the same way and fits the same rods.


FM-05, flex extension & drophead

 

Add a Flexible Extension between the rod and Drophead to increase the ability to negotiate tight bends when you need a stiffer rod to be able to push further (shown with FM-05).



The Drophead or Dropcap screws directly onto the threaded end of your push rod.


Flex extension
The Flexible Extension is 3-3/4″ long, and fits between the push rod end and the Drophead. The ends are threaded to match the push rod and the Drophead.

Either Drophead will fit both the FM-05 and FM-10, and a Dropcap fits the FN-10. Specify the rod diameter (3/16″ or 1/4″) when ordering either accessory. We recommend that you wrap some tape around every threaded joint before sending it down the line.
