Hi Nev,
I have the rod, cable connecter, and tube, but have not got the spring --I would like the dimensions of the spring so I could try and get hold of one and details of how it all fits together.
Cheers Ralph

Acme would provide the whole assembly Ralph, but if you don't want to go that way I can measure the spring from my W/NG. I note that this has a -27 part number and is the same for all models, if that is any good to you. It is a Draganfly part.
