Task: Bottom skins - Mounted right aileron/flap

Today was awesome! We finished the outter right bottom skin! There was a huge amount of pride after driving that last rivet. We were then able to mount the aileron and flap in position.


Here is the inboard aileron/outboard flap mount. we used c-clamps to temporarily hold the flap in position in line with the aileron.



You can barely see the blue line towards the bottom of the open rivet hole. It is the 3/16 edge distance line. We will need a larger hinge to properly mount the flap trailing edge in line with the aileron.


Here is the right aileron bellcrank with the neutral position guide in position to keep the aileron in-trail.
