Pics of Me Working
Thursday September 23, 2021
I drilled holes from the delrin and installed nutplates in the trim support plate.
Then I trimmed the steel piece per the plans and drilled a hole for the cotter pin.
I bolted the delrin block with the steel piece to the trim support plate and torqued the bolts.
Then I connected the trim motor to the assembly and secured it with cotter pins.
Then I bolted the whole thing into the center fuselage and clamped the motor in place.
Then I drilled and bolted the motor to the rib. This was a pain due to limited access.
Finally, I installed these little tabs on the bottom of the control sticks that will eventually connect via springs to the trim assembly.
I don't have the right gauge of safety wire to connect the trim system to the sticks, yet. Besides, I think it makes more sense to wait until the sticks are rigged to the ailerons to calibrate it all.
