Flight Controls

Control Stick Fabrication
These parts took a little bit of setting up to get them just right but was well worth the time spent.

I could have just hacked out the slices on each side and let the welding process take up the slack but one thing I have learned over the years is that one little opps will add to the next and so on. And this is the Control Sticks and the more freedom of movement they have the easier the plane will be to fly and to feel.
Here is another angle showing the slots.
The rod sticking out of both sides was used to get the slots position just right at spring line of the tubing.
I had to move the clamp from one side to the other to facilitate cutting both slots in all 4 control stick stubs.
