    Short legs

    Hi All
    Do you know if anyone makes ''extentions'' for the peddles in weightshifts. Short on the leg front. I know I could use cushions, but it makes it slightly difficult with the forward and aft movement of the bar.
    Appreciate your help/advice
    TC

    Hi Tel
    what weightshift do you have as the quik and quantum range are adjustable I have actually made a set of adjusters so that I could fly the quik from the back seat
    and could send you a couple of pictures next time I am down at the hangar
    fly high fly safe and may you always have the wind at your back
    (except when taking off or landing according to Phil )

    extending the pedals would be fairly easy but extending the throttle and brake would be a bit fiddly :>)

    Brakes on an xl /Q even on a dry day they were less than useless LOL
    the throttle pedal wouldnt be a major problem and I am sure I could rig something up.

    Only problem with sitting further forward Dave is you can't get the bloody thing to come down and land :>) unless you bend the base bar

    Putting a slight "double dogleg" in the basebar can be done;
