Some final pics of the aileron and wing together, now the fun begins, stitching…

First Wing Skinned!

Well, the top layer went on nicely, put the initial shrink on it to 250 degrees, cove looks good so far. Feels pretty good to see this wing shaping up. Next, I will wrap the aileron and if my clearances are good then it’s time for a stitching party!  🙂

Finally Covering a Wing

Well, it’s been a while, most of the summer, but I have finally gotten back to making some progress. Here are some pics of the first skin (bottom) of the lower left wing covering process. Tomorrow I finish the glue up and shrink, then apply the top fabric.

Still Going

Spent some time getting the new Andair fuel valve and remote selector worked out. Finally got a working solution. Also some shots of the fuel pump and switch panel.20151006_193531

I finally got around to gluing up the rest of the lower left wing aileron cove.20150615_215121 20150617_143715 20150617_143721 20150617_150306 20150618_134604

Carbon Tail

The flying tail came out great. When I first spoke to Steve a few years ago he was just working out Sean’s tail so we built mine with the idea I could convert it to his flying tail. Then my good friend Chris had the opportunity to buy Steve Wolfs shop and started Wolf Aircraft Products. So it was time to pull the trigger on the carbon airfoil tail.carbontail1 carbontail2 carbontail3 carbontail4 carbontail5 carbontail6 carbontail7

Lower Wing Aileron Coves

Posted in Bottom Wing, Super Stinker X with tags , , , , , , on October 17, 2014 by mars58

I’ve been working on the lower wing aileron coves. I decided to go with wood coves instead of aluminum. It’s been a lot of detail work sanding out the correct radius and getting the correct clearances that will allow for paint and covering. Here are a few pics. The first is the drawing for the aluminum coves. Main takeaway is the 2.38 radius and the 1.77 height of the top and bottom of the cove.
