Slats, Flaperons, and Alan Shepard

Finished up the empennage and the slats and the flaperons. Was doing some research on Alan Shepard and relate some imperfections to a dispute between Alan and Werner Von Braun about whether Freedom 7 was ready to go or not.12-05-20 Slats, Flaperons, Twists, and Alan Shepard - corvair750See More

Empennage Done

Empennage stuff largely done. Maybe not "done done", but 99.9%. I'm not connecting the stabilizer and elevator yet. I'll be off to Zenith soon to pick up the other parts of the kit. A 13 hour drive ... but I've been wanting to visit Zenith since I first discovered them 15 years (or longer) ago. Demo flight? By all means ; )https://corvair750.com/diary/08-01-2020-empennage-riveted/See More

I didn't want to solder the servo leads. So I did some research and learned a lot about wiring tools and techniques:https://corvair750.com/diary/07-02-2020-aircraft-wiring/See More

Tail / Slats / Flaperons

About 3 weeks ago finished the rudder. Failed to take account lead time so have been reading Sky Ranch, and did short block Corvair assembly. I'm looking for some 95 or 110 HP heads if someone has some rebuildable cores, hit me up I'll take them off your hands ; )Rudder on parts rack…See More
