Re: How Much Cable Play between Rudder and Tailwheel in Q2?

Oh, that makes sense: I did have weight on the tailwheel. And the build instructions do show springs wrapped around.

Is thy that with the tail wheel off of the ground?  The tail spring flex will perhaps make it tighter when the load is off.  You can take the slack off the cable by putting a couple of springs from one cable to the other which pulls them together in the middle.  As you push the rudder peddles left and right the springs move with them.  Hope this is clear as mud.

I have about a half inch of play in relationship to my tail wheel. This is still pre-Six pack, so cable comes from wheel to rudder. I haven't figured out where in the plans this number might be, anyone know?
