Section: Elevatorother aircraft sections
The hinge pin and tip rib have been matched up and drilled out now. I widened the inner-most hole to make room for the weld, so the parts sit flush together. Here you can see the weld on the elevator hinge pin coming through the tip rib I also got the elevator rear channel placed and drilled out, and all of the ribs drilled with pilot holes.
Here’s the elevator skeleton and skins cleco’ed together. I positioned the tips and clamped them, drilled and attached. I measured out, lined up, drilled, and used this bent strip to attach the tip rib to the spar. I drilled out a hole for a grommet on one of the nose ribs. A wire for the trim servo will go through here.
