Flaperon Brackets

Didn’t get any work done yesterday because I was prepping for my multi engine checkride in the Baron. Not too shabby 😉

I switched over to (mostly) getting the flaperon brackets done this morning.

BTW, the best thing for taking off those aweful stickers… WD-40. Sheesh

More controls

I’ll go back and tighten these up and add the cotter pins to the castle nuts when the wings are on.

Flight controls

My weekday progress is on a tight “before work” schedule. Today I started working on the contols in the cockpit.

A buncha L angles

Measured and cut a bunch of L angles for the skins on both wings.

I’ve seen a lot of soltions including tools you can buy to draw enterlines 10mm from the edge of something. Mine is slightly cheaper since it’s made of a scap and took about 30 seconds to make…

And I’m putting the cart before the horse here, but I wanted to get motivated so I started thinking about what the cockpit layout will be.

Wing Nose Skin

Don’t have time? Find time. Between 6am and 8:30am today I pulled the nose skin on the second wing over and started work on all of the skin angles. Chip away a little at a time.
