Where can I find a document that lists the cable tension values and control surface deflection angle limits?

Hello Hugh,

Cable tensions are not provided by Zenith for the 701. I just adjusted mine to ensure the controls operated smoothly with no safety hazards apparent. My elevator cables are so slack to minimize right stick deflection binding that the bungee cord called out in drawing 7-C-0 is the only thing that prevents them from rubbing. Control surface deflections are found in Zenith drawing titled “Control Deflections” it’s available under the Builder Resources link under the “Zenith” tab if you don’t have it. It didn’t come with my 701 drawing package.

Thanks Jim that’s a great help.
