Cozy Construction Chapters.
Chapter 16 Control System
Started 06/02/2007 finished 08/21/2007 up to Step 5 routing rigging Rudder Cables Hours worked this chapter : 57hrs so far. Will finish when wings are complete and firewall is installed.
Installing ply wood pivot mounts, change from plans used not using the phenolic material, used nylon ball bearings pivots so the mounting wholes are different. This change make for a very smooth operation.
Glassing pivot mounts two ply bid both sides.
Test fit pitch and roll torque tubes. In this picture you can see the different bearings used on the pivot blocks. Works nice and smooth with not slop.
Test fit torque tube pitch and roll through firewall, making sure it is free and clear.
Foam jig screwed and taped to table with glass lay ready for epoxy do this two time one for each side
Glassed electrical conduit on jig waiting to cure. Will cut to proper length and angle to fit.
Install electrical conduit weighted down with sand bags waiting to cure.
Electrical conduit with clamp pushing down to help form it to the side of the fuselage. One thing I did is take the green electrical conduit and place it on the outside of the fuselage side weighted down to get it to conform to the curvatures. Let cure for several days.
Map pocket created according to plans, install just above electrical conduit.
Waiting at step 5 page 7 test fit the wings after the Wing Stake and Fuel Tanks chap 21. Once again depending on how and when you build each chapter there is some overlap.
