Thank you for the photo and video of the flex hinge to piano hinge conversion. You have given me confidence for going forward with own my conversion.
One item that I've been unsure of is the rivet size for attaching the piano hinge to the the aileron flanges. It looks like you are using A5's, but still using A4's to close up the aileron. Is that correct?
Have a happy Thanksgiving, and please give my regard to Pat and Ted.
How did that push-pull mod work out on your aircraft?
Are you flying with this modification?
Was this for the ailerons only, or did you also use the push-pull tube for elevator as well?
Do you have any more details of this mod?
I'd like to hear from you.
I'm just watching some of your videos on youtube right now. I am particulary interested in the ones about driving solid rivets. Your videos are an excellent helping hand to me.
Thankyou very kindly.
