To install the tail, it is required that the aircraft
level from front to rear and from side to side.
You might notice that I am cutting some stabilizer attachment brackets
with a cutting disk. The front brackets are made with 4130 steel
instead of 6061-T6 aluminum because I could not respect the minimum edge
distance of 13mm. Chris Heintz verbally approved this modification.
Taking advantage of a beautiful day...
I initially used a laser level to align the rudder with the center line
of the aircraft. Then, when the laser was not available, I used a
nylon line for the same purpose.
Strobe and position light wiring is attached to a rib inside the
rudder. The wires are protected by a plastic cover, pieces of shrink
tubing and electrical tape wrapping.
I reinforced the elevator horn as I noticed some bending when working
on the cable.
