Will that bogi bar holder work in a -10?

Hope so! Hoping to find a solution.

negative ghost rider, this is dedicated to the 14 only.

Any chance
 
Any chance of making a version for the -10?

the 10 has a different bulkhead screw arrangement. are you willing to drill dedicated bracket screw locations in the removable bulkhead? if so, I could take a look at it.

I think so...
 
I guess my question is if the corrugated panel is the same in the 10 and 14. If so, I would think that the 14 unit would work but the mounting holes would be in the panel only, as the 10 has just one vertical support, and it is just off center...

this is correct. the idea of drilling new holes in bulkhead for the brackets needs to settle. the nice thing about the 14 mount is that it uses existing holes.

another option for the 10 that uses existing bulkhead holes is the wag-aero brackets and tow bar. I believe the wag-aero tow bar with a posilock makes a good traveling bar because it is very compact when stowed. just leave it in there. nice to have options. the wag-aero tow bar also is low cost.

what I was finding is that when I thought I would need a tow bar, I didn't. when I didn't think I would need it, I did. now it's always there, up and out of the way and accessible. when parking at an FBO I sometimes throw the bar under the plane in case they need to move it. many times they don't have bars for RVs. put your name or aircraft number on the bar.

Hi Steve,
Do you think you can make the kind of arms that gets attached to the rudder pedal for trim, something similar to this

sure I could make something close to those from nylon and carbon fiber but why don't you just buy the ones from Aerosport? seems that they have put together a package for a reasonable cost.

Ok…no worries. Already have the bogi bar. Very difficult to move the -10 by myself without the tow bar.

Just thought it would be easier to use one that is already available…
