Torque tube in place. I don't like how tight
it is to rotate. It's greased up and it's as
loose as I could get it, but it's still a
little stiff to rotate by hand.
It rotated nicely when it was not installed
in the fuselage. But when it's installed, it
pushes the sides of the fuse out a tiny bit
which makes it stiffer to rotate. I think
the friction is coming from the tabs. Zenith
should have welded them on about 1 mm
further inboard so they are not pressing so
hard against the green nylon.
The flap motor is installed. Still needs a
cotter pin and notice there is no nut on the
adjustable end. That will still need
adjusted later once the wings are installed.
I hooked the motor up to a car battery
and ran it back and forth-works nice!
