Chapter 17 Trim System

Started 09/02/2007 finished 11/19/2007 Hours worked this chapter :22

Plywood and tubing helps turn the 90 degree corner inside the armrests. To hold the conduit I used nails to a scrap peace of wood covered with plastic wrap.

Glassing the yaw conduits.

In this picture you can see how the conduits works and the spring connection. Take your time with the cabling and springs making sure you get full travel. I had to trim the tubing by 1/4 inch to get full yaw cycle.

Here is the ply wood hard point mount for the yaw control. Used a peace of scrap foam as a wedge to hold till cure, then glassed over it.

Mounted the yaw control, purchased the control handle and other metal parts from Cozy Girls their workmanship is very good.

Yaw control system complete.

View of the Yaw control as it goes through the front seat supports.

As for the pitch, I am thinking about installing the  Strong Electric Pitch Trim . I think I will fly it first and see what the pilot work load is like.

Built the landing lights in the nose and in the wings between the fuel tank and wing using the space where the foam filler blocks outboard of bulkhead OD. Still thinking about the winging landing light location. Do I need them, thinking I will wait till testing phase and see how the light coverage is.
