Short Description:  Upper Left Wing Section

Plans:
1. Mount the airfoils into the wing frame.
Status: 25% complete. I have mounted half of the airfoils. A tricky one lands almost directly over the compression strut and interferes with the lift wires. It took some time to sort this out. In the AA video the builder simply shifts the airfoil a few inches away. This results in uneven spacing. That is OK but I was hoping something else might be better. I decided to actually cut away the rib at the point of interference. Since I will be adding trim plates for access to the "N" strut bolts I can also use them as gussets to hold the cut rib in position. This will allow me to keep the spacing uniform.
