Hi

I am interested in a gust lock and am wondering if there are any current opinions regarding same.

I am thinking that something that pins the surfaces is not what I want - I think I would prefer something that has a little give (ie uses elastics / bungee cords).

I do have an email into Wild Blue Innovations but haven't heard back from them.

I do have a couple of limitations -I have Control Approach rudder pedals and my control sticks have covers.

Cheers

Les

I have tried a couple, but I am back to H-Man. PVC pipe with rubber chair
legs on one end and PVC cut on the other end to match the pedals. Use seat
belt for stick. Hard to take off with them in......always placed on pilot
side.

I know it now exactly an H....looks something like this. All parts came
from the aviation department of Home Depot.

Will the gust buster accommodate a cover on the control stick?

I have the same pedals. I made something out of pvc. I took t joints and cut them so they slip over the the top of the bottom pedal. I did something similar to fit the top of the seat box. I use Velcro that is fastened to the pvc to hold the stick in place. It works pretty good.

I have the Bogart (sp?) tow bar, with the slight mod of two tabs attached to the ends to go over the rudder bars, under the brakes. Not sure if that works with your pedals. Handle goes against the seat back, held down by seat belt. stick goes thru the triangular hole. Not sure if your cover will fit, but the hole is pretty big. Use the other seat belt to hold the stick firmly in the 'V'. Hunt around the forum, I'm sure there are pictures somewhere. Works great, cost nothing, adds no extra weight, since I carry the tow bar anyway.

Les;
I miss some e-mails for some reason so I am only seeing your response and
not who Alan is, however I have a antisplat gust lock that does require me
to unzip the control stick cover and also requires the wires be routed on
the inside of the stick, as the retainer is bolted to control stick.
If you don’t mind unzipping the cover and your wires are on the inside, I
highly recommend it. http://antisplataero.com/RV-10_Ultimate_Gust_Lock.html
another option, a home brew is-

I made an H type out of PVC and and extending pole used for paint rollers so I can easily adjust the length. Just cut it to size and rivet PVC parts in place. The handle of the pole end is rubber (no slip) so it just presses against the seat base just above where the stick comes out. Then position it on the top of the pedals so it also functions as a parking brake. The PVC pipe ends of the H fit perfectly into holes in pedals.
Velcro strap secures it to the stick. Works very well. Very easy to make for minimal $ and very light weight. Pretty much impossible to NOT remember to remove before flight.

Make your own. Less than $20 from Lowes. I have been using this for almost three years.
