Flying a Vans RV-10.

Elevators Complete

Wrapped up the elevators today. Last night I double-flush riveted the trailing edges of the elevators. They turned out much better than the rudder. I now have it down to a repeatable process and it looks good. Makes me want to do the rudder over. Maybe if I have some down time between kits I’ll do just that.

Counterbalance lead weights were added to outboard rib tips. After match drilling the trim tab hinges to the elevators and trim tabs, they were riveted in place and both elevators are complete. On to the tail cone before ordering the wing kit.
