Default Front Rudder Pedals

I decided to go with ground adjustable rudder pedals way back mostly because I thought they were a more robust assembly. Inflight adjustable seemed kind of wobbly. Now that I'm in Phase 1 I'm second guessing that decision. My son who will fly occasionally is a few inches taller than me and needs the pedals farther forward. Ground adjusting will be a bit of a pain and adding a back cushion pushes me to close to the stick.

I did put in the aft nut plates for the centre bar for the inflights as a just in case before the floor was closed up. A big problem though is that the ground adjustable attach angles F-8108 are where the F-874 slide blocks for the inflights would run and would probably have to be removed.

1. Anyone ever converted from ground to inflight adjustable?
2. Was I incorrect in the wobbly assessment of the inflights?
3. Any way to make ground adjustment easier?
