Short Description:  Canard elevator and fairing repairs

During transit from Alberta to Ontario the canard wing received some minor damage to the right elevator trailing edge and the left tip fairing.

Loose and damaged pieces were cut away from the right elevator trailing edge where the damage occurred. 1-ply BID cloth was cut to size and taped tightly to the bottom of the damaged area.

A mixture of epoxy consisting of 38g resin and 14g hardner was mixed and some of it was used to make a small batch of dry micro. Workshop temperature was 23 deg C and humidity 53%.

The damaged area was filled with dry micro and the BID cloth was then tightly taped to the top surface. The cloth was wet out with epoxy about 1" back from the damaged area on all sides.

A number of low areas was noticed along the trailing edge of both elevators and so dry micro was added to fill any low areas.

The lower area of the damaged fairing was repaired and held in place with wetted peel ply taped tightly to hold the repaired area in place while it cures. The upper area will be repaired once the lower area cures.
