Trim System

Posted on Updated on

Installing the Aeroconversions trim system is really simple. I drilled a 1/8″ hole in the elevator cable bracket and attached a spring.

The other end of the spring was attached to a washer with a hole drilled in it. I might decide to attach the spring in a different manner but for now this seems like the best solution.

The other spring will be on the control stick assembly. A hole was drilled in the aileron yoke on the left side and the cable end bolted in place.

The cable was routed from the adjuster to the yoke where it was terminated with the spring attachment.

Now the adjuster can be actuated putting more or less tension on the yoke spring.

    I do not see the safety kit installed on your Teleflex Cable

      It will be installed during the final assembly along with lock nuts on all the bolts.
