Task: Misc Tasks
was very productive! I riveted the elevator pushrod bellcrank
together after the primer dried overnight. I then marked the
F- 705J and drilled 9 holes in each. I will use a 3/16"
piece of balsa as a spacer between F-705J and the F-705F channel.
Next I drilled out 3 of the AD370AD4 rivets from F-729 mount
support to accomidate the autopilot pitch servo bracket. After
placing the braket 3" back of the bellcrank center hole,
I drilled the 3 holes using F-729 as a guide. I then found
the center of the bottom flange on the pitch servo mount and
made 4 evenly spaced rivet holes #40. I match drilled through
the bottom skin. Lastly I picked up an ELT mount from Van's
on Friday. It is well work $15. It is available in either
a left or right mount configuration. We chose to mount the
ELT on the right side since the antenna will be located on
that side. I simply held it in position between the two J-stringers
and match-drilled the bottom holes, and then marked 4 holes
on the top flange and drilled.
