Short Description:  Rudder Control

I am waiting on parts from TAF for a strengthening modification to the main undercarriage support structure, not much I can do in that area just now so yesterday & today I spent time sorting the rudder cables. I re-installed the brake pedals & temporarily installed the vertical stabiliser & rudder (both of which will need modification to install upgraded parts too). My legs are relatively short for my height so I need the pedals to be as far back as possible for a comfortable seating position, I adjusted the cable sleeves (they act like a Bowden cable outer sleeve) to achieve that with the pedals even & the rudder central. This will all need fine tuning after final assembly but it's OK for now. I need to modify the rear fuselage in the area of the tailwheel mount as, you guessed it, upgraded parts require upsizing lots of fasteners. I'm going to be spending many hours re-doing areas I thought were complete.
