CONVERSION FROM CONTROL YOKES TO STICKS - STC SA4855NM

PMA given up. Only Three kits left.

Dual Stick Conversion: This kit replaces the control wheels with control sticks. All parts that rotate with respect to another part are on ball bearings or rod ends. The system uses 21 bearings. The use of bearings and rod ends eliminates any slop or play in the controls and provides a smooth travel without any binding or catching. We currently hold a multiple STC for this modification and manufacture the kit on site using our Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA). The cost of the bearings is making it prohibitive to produce these kits economically so if you want the smoothest feel and the best geometry in a stick conversion STC order one of these kits as soon as possible.
We have decided to produce one more batch of sticks. Unfortunately the cost of material and bearings has gone up to the point where we will have to raise the price. The new price for the kit will be $5,500. Order your kit now to lock in this price.
The installation kit includes all the components, new control cables, new hardware, new bearings, installation drawings and instructions and the STC paperwork. The price for the complete kit for the installation of this STC is: $5500.00
Contact don@aeroplanefactory.us to order this STC. NOTE: The price for this STC does not include installation. The Aeroplane Factory or your local shop can install this kit for you at normal shop rates.

ELECTRIC ELEVATOR TRIM - STC SA02052LA

PMA given up. Only Ten kits left.

The original trim crank, cables, and jackscrew are removed and an electric servo is installed in place of the original jackscrew in the horizontal stabilizer. Activation is provided by a toggle switch on the instrument panel. Included in the system is a LED indicator to show the position of the trim tab. Travel time of the tab from end to end is approximately 18 seconds. In the event of a servo runaway, the breaker is pulled to stop the travel. Stick forces have been demonstrated to be light enough even at full deflection that the plane can be safely flown to a point of landing and repair. To this date there have been no reported servo failures. The kit comes with mounting brackets, servo, pushrod, indicator, circuit breaker, switch, hardware, installation instructions, and STC. The price for the complete kit for the installation of this STC is: $1250.00 . Contact don@aeroplanefactory.us for availability and shipping of this STC. NOTE: The price for this STC does not include installation. The Aeroplane Factory or your local shop can install this kit for you at normal shop rates.

The price for the complete kit for the installation of this STC is: $400.00 . Contact don@aeroplanefactory.us for availability and shipping of this STC.
