Took Emp to Airport; Installing Emp Components
Today Jaime helped me load up all the empennage components into the truck to take everything to the airport. Just as we got everything in a nice little summer thunderstorm popped up right over the house and we had to back the truck into the garage to keep everything out of the rain. Once the rain was done we took off and headed for WDR. Jaime took this picture of me getting the forward bolts into the h-stab. This is not an easy reach if you have big forearms -- especially since I have my Dynon magnetometer over one of the lightening holes in the aft fuse deck.
Here I'm still working on it.
And here's the plane with the horizontal on permanently (I think/hope) and the veritical clecoed on. I need to get the empennage fairing drilled, remove the vertical stab and install the emp fairing nutplates and then install the vertical stab for the final time.
