Before closing up the left wing, I need to get the pitot tube routing issues taken care of. The issue is possible interference with the aileron bellcrank, causing control issues. Some of my solutions have been to use adel clamps on the bolts that hold the bellcrank brackets to the spar, so the pitot tube get routed around the bellcrank, thus bypassing any interference. Seemed easy enough, but I though that using a ziptie through an existing unused hole in the spar could work too. This is my first attempt with one ziptie, kind of diagonally holding the pitot and aoa tubes.


This is the same setup, but another vantage point. The green tube is sitting on top of the blue tube, and there is no way to keep both lines close to the spar. Its an OK solution.


this is my second attempt using two zip ties. This worked much much much better.


Looks a lot cleaner than the other solution. This is what I am going to go with unless I or others can think of a reason why not. Simple and lite. I can bundle in the pitot heating wiring in here also. Trifecta!
