Day 28 - April 7, 2012

The last two weeks have been a little bit slower than normal as far as progress is concerned.  Week 26 and 27 were mostly spent attaching the instrument panel.  They began on the fuselage wiring, and installed the brake lines.

Here is the progress that the TeenFlight crew made on the build today:

The problem children of the project have been the flaperons, with many restarts done to ensure correct assembly.

A team worked on the tires, inner tubes, brakes, and axles.

The most complex job of the day was the wiring.  We fed in and mostly installed the main fuselage wire bundles.

After weeks of struggle, the wingtip navigation and strobe light composite fairing was adhered to the wingtip.
Shown here is the landing light that was also installed.

This is the "high-tech" way of testing the lights to make sure that they work.

Finally, here is the line of RVs that the mentors flew in today.  It was in the  60's, 10-20 miles visibility with light and variable winds.

More to come next week.
