100 pages of RV-9A construction!!!

Recommended Posts

A web site milestone along with a construction milestone. Page 100 shows the mating of the windshield to the fuselage for the final time with mounting screws and clips. The plexiglass is prepped for the fiberglass laminations that will bond the windshield to the aluminum skin and provide the overlap layers for the sliding canopy.http://www.n2prise.org/rv9a100.htmThe total of my airplane construction time is 1702.7 hours.Jerry K.

I postponed the fiberglass work session due to rainy weather and not wanting to put that stuff on in large quantities with the garage door closed (no ventilation). I worked on the propeller filler plates and they are visible at the link below to page 100.http://www.n2prise.org/rv9a100.htm#March7Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN

Pictures are posted from yesterday and an afternoon session today (Saturday). This is tedious sanding around the windshield on the edges of the fiberglass. I had to wear my leather gloves to avoid getting stuck in the fingers by fiberglass "hairs" sticking out of the edges here and there.http://www.n2prise.org/rv9a103.htmJerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN

>I was curious how many folks here look at my personal>aviation project web pages even on days when I don't post>anything about updates here on this forum?>Lately.............Every day! I Don't want to let you get too far ahead, you know... ;) Your web site keeps me pluggin along. I'm planning to take out the turn coordinator next week and put in one of those Trio EZ pilots for the wing levelor and GPS tracking. It uses the same servo as yours, so I went back to one of your older pages to check it out. When possible (funds), I want the new Trio altitude auto-pilot also. After some long cross-countries, I found that two axis A/P's are definately the way to go! Since we're both into these things over 70 grand, I suppose it's well worth getting them done..........isn't it! :D L.Adamson
