Hi John

Yes this has been done by one of our members and his name is http://www.zenith.aero/profile/JeffGarrett . I can't see why you would want to do this as the spar web is only thin sheet and probably shouldn't have for and aft pressure applied to it because its vertical strength is what holds the spar caps apart. Obviously this can be overcome by adding bigger vertical angles like Jeff did but the the pressure is still there. I think it is just a bad idea messing with the spar when you don't need to. The pushrods that I and many others made, are largely based on the original control setup and alignment and it works well. Up to you though, I just thought if I was going to give you the link to the info I would accomodate it with my opinion.

 

Merry Christmas

Phill
