Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Today I started building my CH650B! My daughter, Delaney, and I brought the tail kit home with us from the Zenith Open Hangar Day and Gathering. We had a great time, and she got to fly the One Week Wonder!
I worked about 4 hours today on the rudder skeleton. I drilled holes, deburred, and clecoed the ribs to the spar and doublers. I made my first mistake too. My clamps did not hold the doublers well enough, resulting in one hole that is actually 2 holes very close together. The hole is shaped like an 8, and they overlap. I have sent Caleb an email to see if this is acceptable, can be repaired, or if I should just get another doubler and scrap the first one.
I finsished off the day priming the skeleton parts so that they can be assembled tomorrow.
