Brief Description:  Bellcrank and Rudder Stop

Plans:
1. Add a rudder stop. This simple part prevents the rudder from impacting the elevator at the extremes of motion. The technique is to have the control arm bump into the stop before the trailing edge of the rudder can hit the elevator.
Status: Complete.
2. Upgrade the elevator bellcrank. The previous iteration of the bellcrank had a poor weld. There was an area of burn-through. It functioned fine but could be done better. Since I had the success with brazing the stirrup I decided to redo the bellcrank but using a brazed joint.
Status: Complete. The braze went fine. No metal distortion or holes and plenty strong. I reassembled the joint and found it slightly tighter but functional. I elected to coat everything with Super Lube for some rust protection and lubrication.
