Finished left elevator

Sat, Feb 9th 2008


Today was a simple day that had been put off for a while due to other non-airplane jobs, and the fact that the wings aren't due for another two weeks or so. First, I used blind rivets to tie up the ends of the trim tab. Next, I riveted the trim tab servo brackets onto the cover plate and attached the pushrod to the servo, then mounted it in the elevator and attached it to the tab control horn. Then I drilled both elevator control horns for the bearing bolt and installed the bolt, and hung the completed stab/elevator assembly on the wall.
