Spar fittings

Posted on Updated on

Once the structure of the spars was completed I drilled the holes for the root and strut fittings.

I made a template like the manual suggested to help locate the fittings exactly and attached the fittings to it.

Then I located the vertical position clamped the fittings in place and drilled one hole.

Installed a bolt into the new hole and drilled the other one.


Once both holes were in place I stapled one RS-561 gusset in place and match drilled the holes.


Then repeated on the other side.

I made sure to label the guests, spars and fittings so I can match them later.

The strut fittings were completed in the same manner just used a different template.
