Aileron controls

Did the aileron controls today. Was a bit tricky getting the two tubes bend and cut to the right dimensions, but managed in the end. So now the ailerons move when I move the control stick left and right 🙂

This is the first time I have done something on the plane that I am not 100% happy with. I will have a talk with Robert, but I feel I will extend the 1″ aileron tube and have the black lever (see photo just above), right above the aileron bell crank (see two photos up, in bottom center).

This will result in the connecting tube going straight up. At the moment, the black aileron lever hardly goes up. Also in both “end” positions of the aileron bell crank, the black lever is pulled towards the middle. If I make the change that pulling to the middle would be a lot less, and the lever would be going up more.
To be continued………
