Parachute Box

Time: 1.5 hrs

Things done today:

  • Riveted the gear channel uprights
  • Riveted the parachute box
  • Installed the AN3 rose gearing for the autopilot servo on the control stick tube



Parachute box all riveted. I noticed that I’m missing the rocket cover and I guess the rocket mount comes in the finishing kit. The manual says that the holes along the U shaped channel need M4 rivnuts. I was originally thinking that I would just wait until I get the cover to be sure, but it will be hard to ream them out if this is installed in the plane.



AN3 bearing loosely installed in the control stick tube.
