January 25, 2016 Parts Manufacturing Continues
We're just finished with a redesign of the rear spar attach fitting.
These parts are replacements for the Quicksilver parts that are no longer available.
We've taken the time to much improved the design and simplify the attachment process.
Because this aircraft incorporates a wing fold system the fittings on both the forward and rear spar have to be strong enough to withstand the constant removal and re-installation.
The rear spar attachment adapter tube is almost identical to the original to with some slight modifications.
It now requires much less machining as we have redesigned the attachment fitting on the fuselage to allow all of the holes in the attachment tube to be drilled perpendicular to the tube center axes.
