Minimax 1600 Tail Build

by Sep 15 via Android

Cut a new fin and rudder spar. Test fitting the new hinges.

Cut slits for the hinges. Tough job as the saw needs a slot to start one has to drill a number of small holes. Also, my old jig saw ended up cutting these slots at an angle of 100 degrees instead of 90. Luckily this has no effect on the hinges travel and works fine.

Test fitting new hinges. Chaepo metal ruler is 1/16 of an inch, perfect.

Test fit the new hinges in their spars, needed only minor adjustment. Very happy to be nearly back to where I was before. I had stopped building for months and now the bug is back.
