Building a Pelican (November 19th 2000, part 2)

November 19th 2000

Week 20 of our follow-up of the building of a Pelican Sport from Ultravia Aero International Inc.

Detail front wheel strut
We have seen this steering mechanism fixed to the front landing gear strut.
rudder bar
Here is a partial view of the rudder bar and pedals. Note the slits in the floor. They allow the rudder bar being connected to the steering mechanism of the front landing gear (see below).
direction mechanism

control stick

The sticks with which the elevators and ailerons wil be operated are in place. They will be connected through a cable and pulley system to the moving parts of the wings (a pulley is seen in the picture)

Luc is working on the assembly of different small parts like this stick controlling the "servo & trim tab" on the trailing edge of the right elevator (as can be seen on the pictures below, published on this site a few months ago).
