However, what is RV related is posted below and includes completion of the aileron actuation linkages as well as the start of the wing tip work. For the wing tips I opted to use the hinge method of attachment that I used on the RV-9A. It looks great and seems to hold up very well.
|Here is the bell-crank that converts the left to right motion of the stick to an up/down motion that moves the ailerons.|
|Using the hinge method of attaching the wing tips requires almost double the amount of rivets compared to screws. In this picture you can see that I am using a rivet fan to space the holes out evenly.|

|After trimming the wing tip to size I was able to get it taped, drilled and cleco'd in place for this picture. Still lots of work left before this is complete.|
