More Aileron work

Build time sure seems to be limited this time of year but I have been making a little progress on the ailerons.

I mentioned last week how effective the oil cooler is so this week I decided to neck the supply air from a 3.5" inlet down to a 3" inlet.  You can see below the blue inlet vs the white inlet.  I flew for over 5 hours on Saturday doing the Young Eagles flights and never once had an oil temperature get above about 190.  I could go on and on with these tests but I'm just delaying the work on the 10 so I think this is it for the inlet.  The outlet of the oil cooler is going to get a duct as well but that's a story for another post.  :-)

Left aileron cleco'd together for final drilling.
