Aileron Setup

September 2, 2013
Start by bracing the ailerons in the neutral position.  I used a couple of paint stir sticks and some spring clamps to clamp the ailerons aligned with the wingtip ribs:

Next the control stick was braced to be in the neutral position.  Finally the aileron bellcranks in each wing was adjusted with the rod ends on each aileron pushrod to be in the neutral position as shown here:

Now with everything neutral, the aileron cables and turnbuckles were installed and tightened up.  The the turnbuckles were then safety wired:
