Happy Holidays all. We are making great progress on the lower right wing assembly and just started laying out the aileron. It appears the aileron rib cup fittings we have and angled. I m thinking they are for the upper wing ailerons. Anyone have a source for these deep drawn flanges? Jon

Hello John,
Would you happen to have part number for the flange?

As we work to assemble this aileron, I'm curious as to the assembly sequence others have used. I thought about starting at one end and working towards the opposite end but there could be other, easer sequences to follow. For example, would it be better to have all ribs and collars on the spar tube, locate and secure the hinge ribs then security the remaining ribs.

Thanks
Chuck

Hi Chuck,

I just went through this with one of my ailerons. Happy to discuss and go over what I did.
Send me a number and a time and I will give you a call.

Hi Joe...

Sorry for the late reply. We riveted the collars to the ribs the last two days. Some of the collars flanges are not quite 90 degrees so we're searching for replacements. The other issue is finding the drawing A60363. It appears on the aileron assembly dwg and looks like a "U" shaped piece of sheetmetal riveted to the nose ribs to block off the 1 inch gap on the back side of the three hinge areas. Another question is the thickness of the leading edge sheetmetal. I suspect it's .016  2024T3 but haven't found any reference on the dwgs.
We're on the East coast so EST works for me.  I don't feel real comfortable posting a phone number so I have to figure out a less public way to pass my cell number.
