27 Flight Control Sub-Assemblies
This section is dedicated to the Flight Control Sub-Assemblies on the EMG-6. .
Links to Builders Data Base
In this video here we take a look at the process of assembling the rudder. This is typical construction used in the manufacture of the other flight control systems as well. In this particular video there are a few changes since the video was shot, primarily the change to the leading edge. As with all of the videos, they are so time-consuming to make, that we typically don’t discard them until a new video for that subassembly has been made. And with all of the videos refer to the builders database as the primary source for all of the information relating to the manufacture of the aircraft.

In this episode of building the EMG_6 we go behind the scenes to see how we manufacture one of the EMG-6 parts from start to finish. Follow along as we design and manufacture (P/N 51-60-10 bushing holder) using solid works and solid cam software and then cut and machine this integral part on the EMG-6
EMG-6 Hands Off Stability Test
Test flight number 39. On this flight test sequence we show the initial tests for hands-off flight characteristics. Although this is only a short flight we fly the entire downwind leg of the tow to 700 feet with our hands and feet off of the flight controls. In the video you can see by shifting the center of gravity through movement of the body I can control the direction and the airspeed of the aircraft. The aircraft is rocksolid stable and Trims up right at best glide speed. Even by taking my feet off of the rudder pedals shifts the center of gravity enough that you can see the nose pitch down slightly.

Flight Control Gap Seals (From Pool Noodles)
In this "how it's made" episode of building the EMG-6 we look at a cool little trick for converting pool noodles into flight control gap seals. For details on how we manufactured the cutting dies and refined the cutting process visit the EMG web site. http://www.electricmotorglider.com/2016/06/video-cutting-flight-control-gap-seals.html
Tube Marking (Building the EMG-6)
Another episode of "Building the EMG-6". In this episode we look at the process of marking tubing. Pretty much every component on the EMG 6 uses tubing for construction. In this video we show you how to accurately and easily mark tubing for these applications.
