Week 80 This week we get the control column
The bits we received
And what we did with them
Firstly. glue the two brackets that hold the control column to the actuating bar. A quick file to make sure the surfaces are flat, then glue in place with Araldite. Use this sparingly if you want you control column to move. Hold with pegs until the glue sets.
Gluing the assembly to the cockpit floor is very straight forward.
The bits of thc control column just glued on easily with Araldite.
Hot tip of the week
Super glue is fine if you have non absorbent surfaces that meet well. However, if the fit is not quite perfect then epoxy glues are much better.
