11-12 June 2011. I had two days strangely and “unfortunately” available: I was busy with errands and handymen in the morning, and in the afternoon the weather was horrible, with lightning, and thunderstorms, so both days I couldn’t go and fly!

I was able to work on the wing, thou! Now it is “almost” finished: I still have to add the center sheeting, the cap-strips and the Ailerons hardware, but nevertheless the hard part is finished! I think the first thing to do is the find a suitable Aileron servo (with mount?) and move from there; then the linkage coupling, and from there to the bell crank, to be installed when the linkage is ready. When this is finished, it will be the right time for the center sheeting and the cap strips!
