  1. Hi all. I'm new to this group. I bought a MK IV unfinished kit a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions. I'm in A&P school and have my Airframe cert. Looking forward to getting to know some of you. I'm in Southern Idaho, by the way. One quick question. The linkage for the flaperon lever drags on the bottom of the seat. (Actually, it pushes up against the seat when you push the lever down). Also, the tube is bent in a curve downward. I've adjusted the seat a bit by loosening and tightening the tie cords, but it still drags. Is the control lever supposed to snap over center when pushed down, or is it just held in place by the friction device? Any suggestions? My seat is a padded sling type. I assume it came with the kit. I'm not home right now, so I don't have any pics. Thanks.
