Started Mounting VS
The plans for mounting the vertical stabilizer...well...they sort of suck. They first tell you to clamp the attach bracket to the front spar, then they tell you to trim to front spar. Hmm...why in the world did they not have me trim the VS front spar when I built the darn thing? Oh well..not biggie. A dremel with a cutoff wheel made pretty quick work of it. Not pictured: I spent a little while making the elevator stop, which doubles as an attach bracket for the rear VS spar.
While I'm at it, I started playing around with the ELT antenna to see if there's any possibility of getting it to fit under the fairing. I think with the funky sloped mounting base of the antenna it should be possible.
