    Yoke Problem Solved

    I got the aileron issues fixed on my Boeing yoke. Seems I had the gearing backwards. Not having ever used gears before, I took a short read-up on the internet.

    Instead of having the big ring gear on the yoke shaft and the small one on the pot, I have installed the small one on the end of the yoke shaft and a piece of a larger one on the pot.

    Works great. I also changed out the elevator pot mount and used one of the pot arms from my K-balled CH yoke. The pot arm used to be one of the control levers on the CH yoke.

    I flew my first revenue flight for Air France in a month this afternoon. The aircraft handled great with the new yoke.

    Hi, I didn't buy the gears. They came from a scrapped out power antenna assembly for an auto.

    But, here is a link I would have used if I needed to buy them: http://www.servolink.com/default.asp
