    Beyond painful. I don't know if this is just a stunt or what, but the ailerons weren't rigged and obviously the wing wasn't bolted on.

    Don't want to open a can of worms or derail too much, but isn't it 3" minimum now for experimentals? 2" for antiques?

    Plus the idea that if you had 2" numbers before 1981 on a certified airplane,...

    Thanks for that. I hadn't run across them before. Now I have an account and a reference book coming. Looks like I should have known about this 3 years ago.

    I'll post the horizontal stabilizer for reference, too. It has several braces and gussets.

    So are you saying the diagonal braces are welding rod on yours?

    Do you mean the elevator or the horizontal stabilizer?

    I haven't seen a wire on the stabilizer, but the elevators have them. Here is an Airframes Alaska one:

    I'm no expert, but I've heard that the proper method for adjusting rudder trim is to twist the top by hand--so you probably are in the ball park anyway.

    I don't really follow about what you mean as clearance. The rudder ribs are tapered but flat. If they lay flat against a table, there...

    I agree. I like the simplicity.

    I'd probably want some kind of attitude indicator, though. There is plenty of room. Maybe the tablet looking device already has that? I can't make out what it is.

    That poor Champ. I guess it can be uninstalled down the road if he wants to sell it.

    Seems like money would be better spent adding flashing lights if he is worried about getting hit.
