Aileron Brackets

Time: 2 Hours

I had several projects and items I needed to take care of today like replacing the battery on my Harley. I did want to get a little time in the Hangar no matter how short it was gonna be. The next step in the plans is to build the 4 aileron brackets, 2 inboard and 2 outboard. The outboard brackets are made with 2 pieces of flat aluminum, a bearing and an angle piece. The inboards are the same except there is 2 pieces of angle.

I also had to modify the corner of the angle to make room for one of the shop heads if the rivets that attach the top skin to the rear spar.
