Aileron Stick Mod
- Hi all,
As several folks have found, we had had problems with flexing in the
stick linkage to the aileron torque tube.
Our solution to this was to weld a thin flat steel plate to the
back/underside of the stick mounting, to make a U shaped box, open on
It's nice and stiff now and feels quite a lot better. I've posted a
photo of it in the kiwifly folder if you are interested. There is
enough room inside the box to get the locknut on the end of the torque
tube through bolt without needing a hole, so the plate is welded all
the way up to the tube at the top (hidden from view in the photo).
