Minor progress today. We rolled the leading edge of the left elevator. I also installed the rod end on the trim servo.
So I’ve ordered the fuselage. I went with the 7A (tricycle gear) and the tip up canopy.
8-10 week lead time until delivery.
More to follow!
Today I tackled the left elevator tabs, or more specifically, the lack of tabs. I had previously cut them off after failing to bend them correctly. I replaced the tabs with a mini rib of my own fabrication. It went quite nicely actually!
I then installed the trim access panel and trim servo. The instructions were a bit lacking, but got it done!
Thanks to Cheryl for supervising and motivating and Matthew for three minutes and half a dozen clecos of attention!
Cleaned out the aircraft factory (garage). I’ve reclaimed my work space! I’ve also ordered the pitot mast and the Garmin heated pitot! Small progress after a lengthy delay…
After much delay due to life, I finished the right elevator. I’m not in much of a hurry right now since it will be 8 WEEKS for the wings to come in. I should have planned better so there wasn’t a long delay. Oh well…
