Elevator Framework

Building Aero 3D Day 12: Elevator Framework Pinned

Yesterday I did some work on the elevators by myself. This involved getting the perimeter of the right elevator pinned in place and then measuring the length for the ‘cross-braces’ making up the internal structure of the elevators and getting them cut and pinned in place out of 14” x 14” balsa stringers.

The length of the stringers from small to large are 218”, 234” and 314”.

I was surprised by the looseness of the fit. It’s like they didn’t take into account some light sanding of the laser cut joints where glue would be applied.
