Can someone help me with the elevator cable bungee info? I can not find anything on it in the Photo Assembly guides. I saw mention of it in the homebuilt help video. I have bungee material that was part of the finishing or controls kit.

Howdy, I attached my bungee to the cable on the right and attached it to a vertical L angle just behind the hatch opening. It keeps the cables separated  when tensioned and I found that when the cables are tensioned, the stick is pulled to the left and requires excess force to move it to the right. I looped the bungee around the cable and pulled it thru the loop and formed a V with the bungee and attached each hook to the vertical L about 8 inches apart. This gave enough tension to hold the cables apart and pull the stick to center.Hope this is of some help.Tom
