Horizontal Stabilizer, take 2

My first horizontal stabilizer did not meet spec. It had too much twist in it. Here's my second attempt, ready to rivet the skins. It looks pretty straight at this point.

Hi Tim, this 750 mounted a 6 banger Alfa Romeo engine converted for air...130 Hp. The owner produces plastic components and made this cowling himself. His first test taxi & rolls he is preforming very long T/O runs...maybe a W&B issue to smooth out. Keep in touch.

Hello Tim,

It looks like you are already flying your Zenith. Maybe I could pick your brain for tips as I build mine. Good to know there are other builders in the Twin Cities area.
