New Winch Pedals
« on: September 01, 2012, 01:10:54 PM »
Guys,

I made up new Pedals for the winch and retriever.  The Yellow one is for the Retriever and is shorter....the Blue one is for the Winch and is longer.  I'm going to rehab the one we had on the Retriever so we have a spare one for the Winch.

The "Retriever" Pedal has been rebuilt.  The short orange cable has been replaced with a long line (to be used to control the Winch).  The body of the Pedal was filled with crap.  I cleaned everything out and put a bead of Silicone Glue around the base to attach the bottom plate....I also added two screws/locknuts on the open holes to lock it in place.

I'm also building a hand held switch for the retriever...This will allow someone to retrieve without having to climb under the pilot to get the retriever pedal.

The handheld switch worked great today.  It allows someone to retrieve without having to climb under the pilot to get to the foot pedal.
