We made some great progress with the flap and aileron attachment:

  • Matched drilled the attachments for both wings
  • Debured attachments for both wings
  • Primed the attachments for both wings
  • Then, riveted the attachments for both wings

  • Matched drilled aileron and flap failings for the both wings
  • Deburred aileron and flap failings for the both wings

Prepping Flaps

June 19th, 20th,  6h

I got started on the flaps, the last big part of the wings.  The flaps look straight forward and the preparation is going pretty smoothly:

  • clekoed the skeletons and skins.
  • fabricated spacers for the edge ribs.
  • fabricated shims for the back of the ribs.
  • drilled the skeleton and skin.
  • fabricated the inboard angles.

The flaps are looking good:
