I fitted my dual sticks today and I'm very happy. I took my dual stick parts to my welder guy in the spring and after a bad deal I got them back and had another guy finish them, but I have them done now!finally!

Yes I did make all the parts up front. I need to get some Pro-Seal for my tanks, but not sure how I am going to do the bungs and the filler necks. I did get to go flying with Jimmy Young, after he finished his 40 hours. Fun stuff. I am going to get this plane finished.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Hi Paul! You crossed my mind the other day, I was wondering if you were making progress. It's good to hear from you. Get back out to your shop and revit some parts together. I know you have all the parts ready to go! You made all of them up front, lol!
I take spells, I'll get out in the shop a few hours before work and I will ware it out for a week or so and get a huge amount done, then I won't get anything done for a couple of weeks. Get some stuff done and post some pics! I'm looking forward to your progress.

Hey Steven, nice to see that you are still getting some thing done. I have not worked on my plane in a while. Been getting the bug really bad. I need to clean the area and build my wing tanks. I think I am on the ten year plan.

I thought about the throttle quadrant as well. I would love it, but it got really crowded in that tunnel with all my other lines going in there.  I'd love to figure something out one day to make it work though!

Thanks guys, I'm playing with the idea of a throttle quadrant. As I get my controls and fuel and brake lines in, I will have an idea If it will work.

Hey Steven, that looks fantastic! What's that I see in the centre console? Throttle lever? Hand controls for rudder?
