We spent only an hour today, but managed to get the tip ribs drilled into place for the left wing. A friend was over helping with the build, so all the tools that are normally taken for granted become cool and new again.

The left tip ribs took about 1/4 of the time compared to the right wing, and I can only imagine how much faster the rear ribs will be.

Wings: 10h ( 1h, 1h, 0.5h, 2.5h, 4h, 1h )
Flaperons: ( DONE! ) 23.5 hours spent ( 3h, 1h, 1h, 1h, 1.5h, 3h, 6h, 3h, 4h, 1h )
