Bit by Bit

Last post I had just installed the aluminum piano hinges that hold the Two cowling halves together. Not Two days later Dave gives me a call and says he found a guy that makes carbon fiber piano hinges, Carbinge. So last week I was able to swap out the aluminum hinges and install the new carbon ones. I have a few pics below. This weekend I cut and notched the top ailerons and was able too get them hung. It was nice to see all the major components coming together. The top ailerons really complete the picture.
