Re: Panel Progress

Kevin Boddicker

There was once a TriQ fellow named David Chalmers.
He had an auto pilot that had pitch control.
He mounted the servo in the slot between the aft canard and the main tank.
Fit quite nicely as I remember.
I think he has/had a page in the photo archives.
Maybe look it up. should be of value.

Good luck,

We’ve had 2-3 weeks of delays but are back working on the new panel now. We took off the tail tonight in prep for the autopilot servo and new aux battery.

As you can see in the attached photo, I can easily get to and replace my fuel filter now that the panel is out. I love being able to easily access and see everything with the panel gone.

If there are any other items I should pay attention to at this time behind the panel please let me know. For instance, I’ll replace the overflow fuel hose since it’s likely the original one.

I also need to revisit where most people have placed their pitch servo (those with autopilots) because it seems a bit crowded in the center in front of the trim wheel and under header tank so I need to decide where to place it.

Love learning more about these planes but sure wish I was flying more these days. It will all be worth it with these upgrades though.
