Short Description:  Heavy Left Wing

Installed a piece of angle aluminum to prevent left flap from being pushed up in flight. The slop is probably why the left wing is heavy. Installed with Plexus and one 3/16" SS rivet. I need to add another rivet, but will do that after flight testing. The Plexus should hold the bracket solid against the side of the fuselage.

Post flight testing comments: The left wing is not nearly as heavy now. With flaps retracted, there is just a small left wing drop now. The bracket did it's job. I should be abe to adjust the flap rods to remove the remaining heaviness. My concer now is that when adding a notch of flaps, the right wing drops. So, it's either heavy left wing with no flaps or heavy right wing with 10 degrees of flaps. I'm pretty sure Nick will be able to resolve this issue. We're making progress and the flight testing is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing.
