    To have unison Aileron control stick movement it’s necessary to have four pulley units mounted to the lower longerons, located on both the left and right sides of the front and rear cockpits. The pulleys were first made from hardwood doweling, then there was a little wire bending, followed with some soldering. After painting the units could be assembled on the plywood bases. The completed pulley units could then be attached to the lower front cockpit longerons with epoxy. The use of some music wire, with balsa spacers, kept the units in position until the epoxy cured. The bottom of the pulley base was reinforced with a plywood gusset before some finishing touch up paint. Well that completes it for the front cockpit, its now on to the rear cockpit with hopefully the same results.

      Working on the LK-10A control sticks, only halfway there but not a total waste of time.

          Thanks Gunny, the shop cat is usually well behaved except if there is an open transmitter case on the workbench. Having only three legs will not stop him from finding a way to lay in it, this time he was sleeping.
          So much for “just for the fun of it” work on the LK cockpit areas for now at least. After cleaning up the workbench today it will be back to work on the wings with finishing the tip sheeting, ailerons and then constructing the spoilers.
