Some pics of the control setup on a 750

I just  wanted to post a few pics of the control setup on a 750 , for anyone that had anyquestions and would like to get see pics . i know it always hepls me and i havent seen to may pic of the setup

As you can see just swagged to the clevis on the rudder perdals

and i knew they had to be crossed but i was hoping to do it in the tail section , but there isnt clearance over the flaperon bellcrank


   I made the holes through the seat bulkhead bigger and then installed the plastic fairleads

if you can see that I had to put a little bend in the control stick horn to get some clearance when full left deflection

still might have to put a little more in 



fairlead detail on the left


only thing here that needs to be mentioned is that the rudder cables go over the top of the flaperon horizontal tubes, almost swadded them under !


they look tight over the top and they are , i was thinking of slidding a plastic tub over the flaperon tubes

dont know yet

I have found that the hole tourqe tube moves sdie to side with load and i aan going to have to make a shim under the plastic bearing to tighten it up and get the slop out of it . Every one should check theirs


I'll get some more detail pics out soon

75C4-3 seems in wrong position. it should be riveted on the back not on the front of the 75F5-1.

Good pictures. Your right about putting a ( length wise sleeve) a piece of split plastic water pipe over the flaperon torque tube. Rudder cables rub this area ever so slightly. Use silicone adheasive inside the plastic pipe & tie-wraps to secure in place.

Yup, you are right of course. Brain freeze or something...

@Louis - This is due to the rudder cables running down the center line of the aircraft. When looking forward towards the nose the left most cable is attached to the pilot's right rudder pedal.

The right most cable is attached to the passenger's left rudder pedal.


The pilot's left pedal and passenger's left pedal are directly mechanicaly linked. Same with the right right pedals.

The rudder cables have to be crossed? Is the 750 different than other airplanes? Just wondering.
