Distance from torq tube (near elev horn) to floor?

Post by mstineman »

As I'm building steel fuselage with ply floor on top of tube fuselage, wanted to chk I have sufficient height (above floor) for aileron-horn travel.

Thanks,
Mike S

Mike, I suspect that using the same measurements above the ply floor as in the wood fuselage plans will work. Just a guess, mind you. My piet is wood, not steel. Good luck, Ken
