We started on the elevator tonight after cutting the top stabilizer and re-clecoing it back down. About 30 minuts was spent on the stabilizer and about 3 hours on the elevator.

The elevator spar was drilled for the 7H1-7s and the side brackets were cut out. Finding the position of the ribs was an easy job made hard by the wording of the directions.

The side brackets still need to be drilled. According to the manual a tolerance is 1mm, so additional measuring and double checking needs to be done.

Project Status:
Elevator: ~3 hours spent ( 3h )
Horizontal Stabilizer: ~28 hours spent, 3 pieces borked ( 3h, 2h, 2h, 2h, .5h, 1.5h, 3.5h, 1.5h, 5, 4.5, 2h, .5h )
Rudder Done, minus horn : ~16 hours spent, ( ~8h, ~8h )
Workshop Done: ~8 hours
