    but at least they are consecutive HA!

    Here in Southeast Alaska.
    Late April -Late October.

    2020 was brutal for flying weather. We had 24 days without precipitation in the calendar year. Brutal. I’m just about every flying video I made on my channel had some sort of rain in it except a couple.

    Glued my flap hinge points. They were a bit tricky to get aligned but utilizing some scrap ply to keep the flap flush with the lower wing it all worked out. Did each flap separately to maximize my 30min pot life.

    Oh if only! Gotta get my tail done, mount the engine, cut the cowl, fit the plastic parts... paint.... Light system.... GEAR!?!?!?

    Managed to sneak in some pre-wiring for my wing servos.

    Made a little shim to square up my horizontal. It was still a tiny bit off. Then marked the area to remove the covering for it to be glue

    Pictures are not uploading... hmmm

    You still have a couple weeks before the flying season really gets going.
