Looks pretty good. I see you made your own pedals. Good for you! Here is a way to make the linkage to the master cylinders, for your consideration. http://www.canardzone.com/forum/topic/18661-kents-long-ez-project/?p=60524

 

Kent,

  Great suggestion. I had a hell of a time trying to fabricate the plans sliding clevis and eventually just put it on the backburner for now. Your way seems easier. I also like the way Wayne Hicks did his as well, Two u channels welded back to back.

Thanks compliments guys. I've come to realize that logistics is my least favorite activity on this project. Everything goes great until something gets backordered. The past few months have been:

* Start the canard, but run out of spar cap tape, now the canard takes up my workshop table while I wait

* Spar cap tape is backordered everywhere in the world, ok

* Move onto elevator chapter, finish elevator

* Move onto nose chapter, okay still waiting on nose lift parts

* Can't buy the Oelmann pedals any more, so I have to figure out how to make those, deal with that for a while

* Now I'm stuck, can't move forward with canard, elevator, canard install, nose, or even main spar

* Start gathering parts for control system

* Jack comes through with nose lift and sells me some spare spar cap tape he has from the 90s

* Now I'm finishing off the canard finally!

* Oh and by the way, ACS still has my spar cap tape on BO, along with about a dozen other parts 2-3mo later.

* The point is really driven home when I see how easy my RV buddy has it with parts logistics

 

Hopefully now things are unstuck for a while. I'm hoping have the canard & elevator done and installed and the nose lift installed and working before Oshkosh.

"I can't figure out how to edit posts."

 

As I recall, on this site your editor is active for a period of time on any comment, then closes. I'll just test that...

 

yes, edit button active at the lower right, but it will disappear sometime later.
