    You're going to tension your flight controls to a figure suggested on a forum? Ask the LAA Engineering team.......

      All ready have...

      they gave me a few numbers of people who might know, not much luck. was thinking there maybe someone on here who was building just finished building one that may have the figure to hand.

        The world of light aircraft is a bit scary... since the LAA are in effect, the design authority for the type, you'd have hoped that they would have a set of plans in an archive somewhere.... ah well, over to the Taylor owners...

          I have a friend who owns one. He bought it off the chap who built it, earlier this year. It appeared in the October copy of LAA Magazine.
          I'll see if either of them can help.

            I dont know what paperwork / documentation came with G-APRT when it was donated to Newark Air Museum earlier this year; you could always make contact with the curator his contact details can be found in the Getting In Touch section on this page!
            Find out what's happening at newarkairmuseum.org
            Please help move Chinook ZA717 to Newark Air Museum

              I had a Mono a long time ago and IIRC we had no cable tensometer.
              It varied with the seasons anyway, being a wooden airframe.

              We used "engineering judgement" adjusting the turn buckles until there was no chance of slipping on the pulleys, but not so tight you wear the bearings, pulley and tuffnel fairleads.

              Your inspector (assuming LAA) is the ultimate arbiter. You won't find tensions quoted in AC43, but there is a lot of good general guidance about cable control inspection and maintenance (Chap 7 I think). Worth a read on safetying turnbuckles too.
