Chipping Away

Weeknights are a little at a time. Did the Wingtip L angles and drilled out the large A6 rivet holes that attach it.

Now to disassemble, apply cortec and rivet.


Bottom skin L angles

Flipped the wing back over to measure and cut the L angles that go in between the ribs on the bottom skin.

Not thrilled about the holes lining up in this skin. Going to try starting from this side and seeing how it works out.

Don’t want to forget these before I button this up:

StratuxHUD Build

I bought a Hudly Wireless a few months ago and have been writing a display for it with a Raspberry Pi.

Last week I stumbled on John Marzulli’s presentation at Airventure on his build. Somehow I missed it when there this year, but luckily someone recorded it.

So I grabbed a PI off the shelf (I have 10 or so of them) and gave it a whirl.

The install was simple enough if you’re familiar with Linux.

It’s quite difficult to photograph a HUD, so I hooked it up to the TV in my office so you can see the interface more clearly.

I forked the project and will be making a few modifications as I think of them. I’ll make those changes available to the main project if they’re interested in them.
