The time to install the potentiometers in the simulator and to connect them to the rudder and trim cables as well as the air brake tubes has come!

We spent a lot of time looking at various designs before deciding on our design. This also required a fair bit of adjustment, creating longer or larger parts as needed. This demonstrated the power of using 3D printed parts for both prototyping and final assembly.

We installed and tweaked the trim potentiometers.

The air brakes potentiometers And the rudder potentiometers:

We also greased, re-routed and adjusted the rudder cables a final time to reduce friction against the aircraft frame. We made some small adjustments to the stops on the front air brakes tube and the trim cables.
