    Yes , Life happens...and when you can, you get back to your plane...
    .
    I had a Tornado come about a block and a half away...Caught some damage.
    When people asked... "Are you OK ? "... After , They ask" How's the PLANE? "
    Haaaa

    In the span of building a plane... a lot of things come up that take priority.
    Building is a hobby , you get back in it.

    Nice Workmanship !

    Thanks.

    Had a good day of work yesterday. In the morning Rose and I constructed the aileron bellcrank.

    In the afternoon we built the elevator bellcrank.

    The spacing of the angles to mount the elevator bellcrank must be widened. When the control stick moves side to side to operate the ailerons, the front of the elevator push pull tube does also. At the width in the photo, the tube will hit the angles. Just need longer spacers.

    Oh, I see what you did there in keeping the elevator rod low.

    Rather than a bellcrank, consider a round bushing where the lower tube goes through there instead, and a join of the two push-pull tubes.

    That way they can twist and the lateral motion won't become vertical.

    If you're not a big fan of the long portion of the elevator tube shaking around and flexing, I'd suggest putting in another round bushing for it further down as well.

    I'm not sure I follow you Frank. There is only one short pushrod to the elevator bellcrank from the control stick. Cables from the bellcrank back to the elevators.

    Oh, I thought it was a push-pull rod all the way back, like mine.

    I only have cables for the rudder.

    Rudder bar assembly is installed. The floor board will have heel plates attached and a cutout for the rudder cables to go under the crossmember.
