ELEVATOR. Torque Tube Fuselage Opening #1

elevatortorquetubefuselageopening1.jpg

To mark the center of the elevator torque tube holes, I placed the canard in position and ran a piece of piano wire through the elevator hinge arms until it touched the fuselage. I then marked and drilled the pilot hole and enlarged it as necessary with the help of a piece of PVC tube I had around to ensure proper size and alignment. I then drew the shape of the section I wanted to remain attached to the canard to allow its removal with the torque tubes.
