    Hi Stephen,
    Yes, green brackets attach as the existing attach for the elevator the blue brackets would attach where the existing steering column attaches on a stock pacer and are the swivel point. I drew the aileron cable attach on the right stick, there would need to be one on the left. the cable attach are on the same axis as the attach point so the cable would not swing. What did I miss? I have not built and tested this concept yet.

    It looks like it will work but, I wonder about the clearances. With the axis above the normal pivot point at the horizontal tube you will have the whole bracket swinging which will require more room. I am guessing that your pivot point is easier to install. But, you may have a challenge getting the throws right and having enough room. I built mine like the Clipper and getting full aileron deflection was a challenge.

    Good points. Until I build a prototype and actually test it I won't know what changes are needed or even if its practical. I'll be doing that soon and I'll let you know how it works out or doesn't.

    Post pictures as you are doing this project. It should be interesting to see.
