I met Mike at the airport tonight to pick up his wing cradle. Here’s a quick pic. Assembly still required.
Today was a collection of random tasks for the hangar. First, I finally got a new torpedo heater to replace the propane heater I was using. This is a Procom 175VT factory reconditioned unit for $259. It includes some whiz-bang features like automatically variable BTU output from 125k to 175k based upon the thermostat setting, and manual btu selection. Its also multiple fuel burning kerosene, diesel, heating fuel, or jet A. I’m running tax-free off road diesel in it.
The hangar mascot was quite cold until I fired up the heater.
I temporarily installed the bell cranks.
I also bought some new parts organization bins to organize some parts I’ve left sitting around and in anticipation of the fuselage kit’s arrival in May.
I also installed the ailerons in order to match up all the hardware for easier installation later.
