Section 9 Elevators
....May 8, 2021

Well... have been putting these off for a while. Started working on these elevator tips a while back. Got very frustrated and set them asside. At a point where I have to attach them, so... can't avoid them now. What a PITA... They are together, but the process is ugly... thicker material, and they just don't go together. More work to do.


Section 9 Elevators
....April 21, 2021

Finally back to working on the elevators. The first tab bend was not great. Spent some time thinking through a better way and the remaining three tabs look good. Will cut off the first one and rivet on a replacemnt tab.


Avionics / Panel
....April 9, 2021

Got the panel unboxed and carefully placed on a table. Will need to set up a more proper place for this to live for a while. Really nice work from Stein.. looks really nice.


Avionics / Panel
....April 3, 2021

Got a box from Stein Air yesterday. Will take pictures of the unboxing as I get into it. Stein included some Garmin and Stein Air swag in the box... they have a couple of tags that are funny. "We aren't happy until you are broke." Pretty funny :)


Shop / Workspace
....Jan 10, 2021

After months of getting drawings finished, months of agency approval and obtaining permits, finally have things moving at the new office / shop. Slab was poured this past Friday night. Now, just waiting on a building to be delivered... more waiting :)


Section 25-26 Fuselage
....Dec 2, 2020

Picked up the quick build fuselage today. Those are two very large boxes. They are going to stay on the trailer for a while. Not yet ready to deal with them.


Section 8 - Horizontal Stabilizer
....Nov 29, 2020

Hor. stab is finally done. Was not as productive on this part and I should have been. Took a few months to complete. On to the elevators... once I figure out where I am going to store/hang this thing...


Section 25-26 Fuselage
....Nov 21, 2020

Got word from Van's that the fuse is being shipped. Have received the Bill of Lading from ABF, so it is on the way. I am scrambling trying to find a place for it... not ready just yet. But, another step forward.


Preliminary Avionics
....Nov 3, 2020

Stein Air Panel Design. Have been working with Stein on finishing up the panel. I had a good idea of what I wanted, so it was a matter of filling in the blanks. Pretty happy with how the final panel turned out. The PDF of the final panel design is posted to the drawings page.


Section 8 - Horizontal Stabilizer
....Oct 21, 2020

Hor. stab video montage update. Haven't been very productive over the past couple months. But, finally got all of the hor stab parts drilled, dimpled and primed. Started applying some rivets tonight. Want to get this knocked out and move on to the elevators. Spoke with Van's this week and QB fuse should be delivered in another month or two... so, need to get on to the tail cone.
