Nothing but trouble. Installed the lateral spring assist assemblies and it appeared that the right roll transducer failed. Next time I fired up the compressor the rear pitch transducer wasn’t working so I am guessing it is an icing problem because of the humidity.
Tests I ran ended up punching a small hole in the bottom sheathing because of a improperly placed support I made for transport. Then I ended up breaking the wood bottom plate for the right roll actuator. And there are noises from the left roll actuator’s linear bearing (probably damaged from side-load before I added the U-joints to the bottom of the roll actuators).
Overall very depressing!
I started looking at E/P Proportional 2/3 Valves last night but the cheapest I could find was $550. I was looking for cheaper ones on eBay but found I found these 500-EH transducers on eBay for a fraction of the cost I paid for the replacement left roll transducer. So I got to thinking that I can simulate a proportional valve programmatically by connecting the opposite transducer to the top port on the actuator. Not sure if that will give me more control or not – I am also looking at flow control valves.
