Flaps 1 (2.0 hrs)


I need a second set of hands to finish up the fuel tanks, so in the mean time I started working on the flaps. I started by pulling out the ribs and spar, and pulling the all the blue plastic off. IMG_5693.JPG

Next I clecoed the ribs and lower skin together.IMG_5694.JPG

The instructions tell you to check the space between the rear spar and the inner ribs. The left flap pictured here was ok.IMG_5697.JPGThe right flap on the other hand had spaces between each rib and the rear spar. I started fabricating of the shims but didn’t finish for the day. IMG_5696.JPG
