Day 16 - January 14, 2012

There is still a lot of work to be done on the build, but we continue to progressively work on our group projects.  The right wing was finished (last week) and passed Q.C (this week).

It was then hung on the wing rack which is serving as our rack of finished control surfaces. 

The team that I was on had the privilege of beginning the forward lower fuselage and lower firewall section.

The center fuselage bulkhead section and seat ribs are coming together very well and are almost ready for the bottom skin.


We were introduced to (and I got to use) the helpful yet smelly substance of fuel tank and firewall sealant (known to some as Proseal).

  Another team worked on the servo mounting bracket for the anti-servo tab’s servo, and tail cone attach points.

We will hopefully be able to mate most of the lower fuselage to the tail cone next week.  Stay tuned for next week's update as we continue on our way towards our goal of flying by June.
