Kirkey Seat Test Fitting

The new seat has arrived! As expected there is some modification that needs to be done. The front of the seat interferes with the seat. I am not sure which route to go, either modify the seat or the stick. The idea of modifying the stick was what came to mind first; not sure why but a bent yoke stick just looks cool.

Here is an example of a bent stick on Smizo’s airplane. Photo from biplaneforum.
