Flying a Vans RV-10.

Elevator Tips

Tore down the whole tail today. Decided not to put on the elevators again or the rudder. Would just be taking it apart afterwards anyways. So I decided to start on the fairings.

Worked on the elevator tips. After getting them on, they don’t look too bad at the seam. There are some manufacturing defects in the tips that caused some dips along the seam. I think I will be doing as Dan Checkoway and filling and glassing the seam to make it look like a continuous surface.

Time to order the wing kit. Too bad there was just an 8% price increase on a couple days ago.
