Hi Guys

Requesting a little help, please. FLOOR TO TOP OF STICK HEIGHT

After going through all the available drawings, I have determined that there is not (one) that provides the Stick height above the Cockpit Floor dimension.

I completed the drawings below with the Control Stick, Grip, Socket Assembly, Fitting Assembly and the Torque Tube. I used all the dimensional information from the drawings I could find and some information from Ed, (Thanks, Ed), and from another forum member to complete the drawing below.

I am asking if you guys agree with these measurements or if not, do you have some information that can help make this drawing more accurate.

Thanks

Stang

Having designed the Spitfire from scratch, then modified it with GAs, then started full sized plans and finally, starting to draw pieces in Corel Draw for lasering and engraving..I am truely in awe of what you have done here Stang!

Thanks for the kind words Darryl,

It's a lot of work for sure, but once it's done, then everyone can benefit from them.

I'm getting close now as today I'm finishing the Seat and then I'll finish the Rudder Pedals.

I'll post some pics later today when I have a little more done.

Everyone keep safe from all the hurricanes. Irma is supposedly heading for us in Atlanta. Hopefully, it will miss or run out of steam before then.
