Hello Fellow KIS Builders, A follow up on pitch control stops:

1) I wrote: "Pitch: For forward stop I just let the control stick bracket
hit the
front edge of the opening in the pilot's seat bottom. For aft stop I
installed a mounting bracket and a long hex socket head cap screw (that
could be adjusted) in the aft side of the bottom of the seat bottom opening.
The control stick bracket would hit the cap screw head to stop aft

Attached are two pictures of this arrangement.

2) I like the pitch control stop arrangement that Keith posted (see below)
better than mine and would have used that one had I known of it.

gather and understand knowledge."

my simple pitch control stop is illustrated in this picture.
Aluminium "L" Bracket attached to side of the console tunnel and two
repositionable hose clamps on the main elevator control rod . ( i think i
copied this from Ray Clegg)

(See attached file: DSCN0760.JPG)

for the ailerons the sticks come with a bracket for this specific function
(or at last mine did) , so no need to invent something
