Right Aileron Complete

I was so happy to be able to work on the plane most of Saturday.  It was great to get a long stretch of time to mess around in the shop and work on lots of odds and ends, but most importantly finally finished the right alieron.   I laid it upside down on a flat surface (very carefully) and weighed it down to make sure its flat, before working the end rib rivets, then onto the pop rivets across the bottom spar.  Turned out fairly nice, and didn't scratch it a bit.

After the aileron was complete, I test fit it on the wing.   Makes the wing look really thick in the stand but definitely cool.  Most people flip the wings into the cradle before mounting the aileron.  I was able to get under the wing pretty easily so just went for it.

Also, this weekend I fished a few wires up the conduit, started working on the right wing antenna coax.

My big order from Stein is coming in the next day or two, so I will be able to start some serious wiring on the wings.
