Aileorn Cable Centering

Postby Gary H » Mon May 14, 2007 12:49 am

Just wondering what everyone else is doing to center the aileron cable. The hing is center of the rib and so is the control horn, making the cable pull off center of the pully. I made another bracket (see picture) will put spacer's in and glue. Has anyone else had this problem?  :?

I just bent the control horn over a bit to get the cable to clear the rib.  That was Troy's recommendation at the time.

yes, lousy answer huh? I'm just not a "bend" it guy. Heck, lets just get a hammer and we can make anything fit. You would think they could correct the problem. They are aware of it! I think this will work. Next time I will make my own control horn and it will fit correctly. Thanks Dave.
Great to hear your plane is flying good. I can hardly wait   :lol: !
