Tail work

Hours: 1.2 | Posted in Endgame, Wing & Tail Joins

Popped out to the airport again tonight:

  • Removed the spiral wrap from the taillight wire and replaced it with expandable sleeving, in an effort to keep the weight down in the rudder.  This required removal of the Molex connector, which we be reattached tomorrow.
  • Crimped a ring terminal on the taillight ground wire.
  • Installed & torqued the last VS attach bolt with the adel clamp and ring terminal.
  • Hung & pinned the elevators.  Discovered the collection of special washers needed to install the center bolt must still be in the shop at home.
  • Verified operation of the pitch trim servo.
