Flight Controls

4130 Chrome Moly tube for the control system and the elevator bell crank.


The phenolic pulleys are part number MS24566-3B. These are a 2 inch diameter with a 1/4 inch bearing hole. These suit the 1/8 cable that runs from the control stick to the elevator bell crank.


Most of the control system is made. Just one more set of brackets to cut out for the front elevator pulley then TIG weld it all together.


Instrument Panels

I had a play with the instrument layout...


I drew the rear instrument panel using CAD and had the panel laser cut. It was my first attempt at CAD so very happy! I will use this panel as a mockup and make the final adjustments before having the actual panel cut. As can be seen in the photo, I havent fitted the VHF radio or CHT / EGT gauge.
