Brief Description:  Problem solved...I think

So before I got real crazy about this nose gear issue I decided it was a great time to remove the VPX, bracket, and nose gear actuator cover for the 15hr inspection. Good timing you could say.
I got everything off easily and starting checking the limit switches. What I found was that the limit swtich designated for the UP function wasn't completing the circuit when closed. I removed it, dusted it off, clean it up a bit, and cycled it a dosen times or so and WHAM now it works! What the? I tested it several times to see that it would continue to work and it did. I'm guessing it was a little dirt on the contacts or a sticky swtich. Who knows? The good news is that it was an easy fix and nothing major. It's all back together now and ready to fly. I was surprized how clean it was inside the nose gear cover being that I don't have gear doors. That's good news ;)
I was also able to fine tune the UP/Down gear position a little better than where it was. It didn't need to come down so far.
