Mechanical design

March 8, 2015

The next step was to make a mechanical design for connecting the primary flight controls to the servo motors. Four channels are used: aileron (CPT/ FO), elevator and rudder. Underneath the cockpit, all the original mechanical parts are being used. Aft of the cockpit, the cables are connected to several sprockets and cable wheels, bridging almost 80 years of technology.
