After working on the vents, Bekah and I took the plane for a stroll out into the driveway. My fuse stand is great such that I am able to roll it all around and take the plane or walk. While it was out we played around with the horizontal stabilizer.

Vents and Pics from out front
I spent much more time that I wanted to on the vent mounts.. These guys turned into quite a problem, in fact I made them about 3 times before finally getting it right. I basically made them out of .040 aluminum sheet and borrowed a bending brake from a co-builder. First time I bent one, I broke the tab right off. Lots of little lessons learned like that one. In the end they went in smooth and tight.. I think the audio jacks are perfect in this location and you can only get them here with the small vents..
