Horizontal Stabilizer; Skeleton Work
I was able to work a couple hours and managed to debur, flute, drill, and attach the skeleton for together for the Horizontal Stabilizer. The work on the ribs took the longest, making sure that they were straight and aligned before going together. Bekah got a pic of me trying to make sense of all the parts.
Oh, and also the highlight of my weekend.. I got my first ride in an RV-7.. Until now I have been going on faith, but now I know. It is an amazing aircraft. Jim Piavis a local builder was able to give me a ride in his recently finished -7. Note the aerobatic pic.. Was able to focus on Mount Rainier in the middle of a roll, that is how smooth this aircraft is. ;-)
