Ok as far as the airplane goes I was able to get the Horizontal Stab, Elevators, Vertical Stab and the rudder hung this weekend. I have a few pictures to show you below.
|The EAA chapter booth at the show on Saturday.
|Next door is the Team Flight display. This is a pretty neat program where the kids actually build the airplanes. Very cool.
|This is where the elevators get connected together and attached to the control pushrods. If you look down the that dark hole you can see where they all come together.
|Here I am clamping the elevator to the HS so that I can align the two elevators and drill them to the control linkage.
|This is what the other end of the control linkage you saw above looks like. This is the belcrank that eventually connects to the control stick.
|Here I am clamping the Vertical stab (VS) to the fuselage so I can drill the many holes for bolts that hold it to the airframe.
|Rudder attached, the first time... one of many.
|This is the internal rudder stop. Vans has you place them externally but I like the way this looks and operates better.
