Hi guys:

Reading the octagonal boom question in a recent post, I decided to ask a question I have.

Is there a reason why Hirobo uses its current aileron mechanism, using only one connection point at the swashplate, and with the offset it has?

The way it's now will apply an upward and sideway force. I was thinking that they maybe using it to apply a phasing correction while applying lateral cyclics.

Thank you very much.

David

The offset enables the linkage to be set at 90 degrees. It makes for better geometry & more equal travel on both sides.

Yeah, I've thought why only one aileron connection? An idea was to bolt the existing lever on a pivot running through hollow elevator pivots & attach another aileron lever on the left side. However the main mast is in the way unless it is bypassed with an u shape or the like.
