Default Rudder cable conduit routing - hidden bellhorns

Just about to route the groove for rudder cable conduit. I have couple of questions:
1. The main one is does the cable need to be routed differently as you get to the wingtip if installing hidden rudder bellhorns?
2. Are there anywere on web good instalation instructions, drawings, pictures for the hidden ones?
3. Since I still didn't decide which way I will go, are there any advantage (beside cosmetic) to installing hidden bellhorns and also any disadvantages?

Thanks for any input.

John

the install of the rudder cable conduit is the same wether they are hidden or knot

mmm - the only real instructions i know of are the ones that come with the plans

one guru used to say that you did not get full travel with the hidden belhorn, i think he changed his tune on that one.

If you want a lot of chatter on the subject - go over to the zone

Don't know if RAF still sells the plans, someone may have to copy them for you. I think the cozygirls now make them, if you don't want to make them they probably have instructions to go along with them.

Thanks Dust!
Got the conduit routed per plans and also got the antenna in. So it was a good day. Now ready for top skin.

The retro fit instructions also called for rerouting the conduit. They ran
it inside the aileron cavity then straight to a point 1.2 inches from the
trailing edge paralleling it for 12-18 inches.
