Short Description:  Dangit Burt!

If there's ever been a part of the long ez design that is obviously flawed it's the poorly designed control system. The system itself is solid after upgrading to a full bearing $1000 Cozy Girl package, but fitting it into the console and getting full max throws takes a miracle. There simply isn't enough room to clear the console and the side of the fuselage for both the hardware and your hand. This means compromising in roll authority for a "best case" rigging. For my bird this means accepting aileron throws of about 20-21 deg. vs 22-23. Not the end of the world but without major surgery, she just won't roll to her max. This is Burts fault as I'm sure was a conversation of being "good enough" back in the day. I'm sure Burt never intended on fast aileron rolls anyway. SO after 3 hours of rigging and re-rigging, she should be back together and ready for a test flight tomorrow.




Rigging continues..
