Default RV4 electric trim cables

Hi Guys

Just started jigging up my HS skeleton, all holes drilled and clecoed, but now I need to drill the hole in the front spar and HS410 sparplate for the trim cable. The plans call for a 5/8 hole.

My question is that I am installing electric elevator trim, so will only be running an electrical cable through this hole now instead of the mechanical trim cable, so is it worth making the hole that big?

Thanks in advance, great site for building info for the newbie

Hi,

In my -4, I drilled holes only large enough for the cable and the appropriately sized bushing.

Good luck,

Dean
