ELEVATOR. Hinge Installation #3

I jigged the elevators in place against the canard, leaving them about 1/16” oversize for trimming adjustment on the inboard end considering the length of the torque tubes and the width of the canard center hinge assembly. I temporarily assembled the hinges. I located the assembled hinges in place and marked their position on the elevators, making sure that they were perpendicular to the elevators’ leading edge.
