In this step I will install the rudder pedals. I bought the pedals from Dennis Oelmann. I’m going to mount them with lay-down cylinders.
2013-11-05: When I started to study this chapter I wondered if the pedals was going through the holes in NG30 without any reinforcement. I studied several builder-pages and found no concensus on this. I guess it’s ok to just use NG30 as a support, but some also recommended to use bushings here. I ended up buying four oil-lite flanged bushings fram ACS, 3/4″ ID and 7/8″ OD. I floxed them in NG30.
2013-11-09: Floxed hardpoints made of H100 Divinycell to the outer nosewall just in front av F22. This is to support the outer rudder pedals. I will then rivet a nutplate to a 1″ x 1.5″ aluminum-plate, recess the foam and epoxy this to the foam. Then the foam and nutplate/aluminium combo is glassed over with 4 BID overlapping the surrounding with 1″, including forward of F22.
