The mechanics and model plane builders among you will be able to relate to this the most, I bet. I have seen model planes hooked up backwards or the servo turning the wrong direction as well. Never ended well. Rigging cables in a real plane can be a huge task sometimes. To get all the tension right and everything hooked up an routed properly is a lot of work. And a lot of times it involves climbing into really tight places inside the airplane which for some reason I was always volunteered for.
This kind of work is better done by anyone but Chuck. Yet I have to say, he’s been coming along over the years. Maybe he will get the hang of it one of these days after all?
