    Yeah, I don’t know what you are using for an engine/prop nor your landing gear configuration. I could just keep guessing and assuming. BTW, sorry for assuming you didn’t have good reason for not putting the engine controls in the center.

    And, thanks for sharing your build and decision process. Lots of good info and discussion that is educational for me.

    0n my Taylor mono I have 11 inches from center of pedal to center of pedal and that's up fairly tight to Fus. sides and the heel brakes are tucked between them. Would be a big problem to knee the stick. but you can stop roll rate and pitch if you squeeze your legs together to hold stick. I call it a pucker.:gig:
