Hi guys,

Has anyone had tie down rope clearance issues when mounting the pitot mast on the inboard side of the rib just outboard of the aileron bellcrank?
That's a bit of a tongue twister, so here's a picture that shows what I'm talking about (pitot is outboard side of bellcrank):

I’ve only got a few hours on mine and noticed it in a recent trip. It really depends on the width of the tie down points. If they’re narrow, then yeah. If they’re wide, then no.

But if I moved the mast outboard I’d still have problems at those places too. So it’s as broad as it is long.
I don’t think it’s worth the trouble to reinvent a location and move it from the standard location.

Mine are in the standard location and I’ve never had any tie down clearance issues in 9 years and nearly 1000 hours. Narrow or wide doesn’t seem to make a difference. I figured Van’s had flight tested the prototype with the pitot in that location, so the odds of having pitot/static accuracy issues would be minimized if I followed the plans on that particular issue.

It’s not an accuracy issue. It’s the rope running into the pitot tube of the tie down points on the ground are narrow....

I understand the issue. Just putting in my $.02 worth and stating why I made the decision at the time.
