- Right Elevator
to Log Index
Task: Final drilled the right elevator skin.
Deburred, dimpled, and prepped the spars and ribs for priming.
Deburred and dimpled the stiffeners. Drilled the counterweight
to reduce its weight. The right elevator weighs less than
the left side due to the trim tab and servo on the left side.
I clamped the lead weight to a drill press and used some oil.
I then used the band saw to cut across all the drilled holes
and sanded it smooth.
Final drilled the skin.
Dimpled, deburred, and edge finished all the
spars and ribs.
The counterbalance marked per the drawing.
I left some extra so I can remove as necessary after the elevators
Dimpling the stiffeners
All the right side stiffeners are complete.
