Task: Control Systems
had the Infinity control grips for awhile now but I'm finally
getting to them. They come with a very thick multi-conductor
blue cable that would require an excessively large hole in the
sticks to pass through. I decided to remove about 6 wires (all
grounds) and tie them together. I also removed all of the blue
outer jacket. Once that was done, I put snake-skin around the
wire which reduced the OD considerably.
I ran the wire through the sticks to check the room remaining
with rod-end bearings in place. The stick is WAY too long and
will eventually get cut down once the seats are in.
You can see the snake-skin coated wire coming out of the bottom
of the stick. It is pretty small in diameter and there is plenty
of room for it and the two rod-end bearings without binding.
As many other builders have documented, the F-779 control rod
hits the bottom of its cutout mid-way where the wing rear-spar
is. The Dremel took care of this in seconds. We ran some emry
cloth over it and then used the Q-Tip method of priming.
