Project Visit; Wintip Work
Today my EAA chapter held a project visit at my place. There were about 20 folks crammed in my garage. It was nice to have lots of experienced eyes looking over everything. There was only one squawk mentioned...by about 5 people...the screws on my remote magnetometer are installed with the screws pointed up -- the rule of thumb is to have screws pointing down.
Again...lots of people showed up but Jaime could only get a few in the shot at time. That's me on the right explaining something or another to Fred.
After everyone left I decided to get cranking on mounting the tips to the wings. It requires a lot of tweaking and taping but it all works in the end.
This is a common problem...my tip extends 1/5 past the aileron. I think there's enough buildup in the tip to file it down and then reinforce the inside. I can fix that after I'm flying and before paint.
Here's a shot of the rib drilled into place.
