Brief Description:  Finished VOR antenna, laid out rudder trim

I finished the VOR conduit and antenna mount. Working from the safety wire I had put around the conduit last time, I drilled a couple of holes in opposite sides of a lightening hole in the mid-rib. It took a bit of work because my arms barely fit inside the VS, but I got the wires through the holes and fastened them using with the safety wire twisters. A hole was drilled in the bottom rib for the conduit and the conduit routed through it. Then I riveted the top rib back in place and drilled out the openings for the whiskers. I installed grommets in the holes and then test installed the puck with screws too long and washers until the real hardware arrives. Then I tried out the whiskers, as you see in the second picture.

After that, I took some time to lay out the rudder trim tab and the trim servo access hole. You can see it in the picture, where I enhanced my ink lines in MS Paint. I laid everything square to the spar to simplify the movement geometry, even though it makes the tab itself oddly shaped.

10/1 - replaced the second picure with one showing the correct screws and washers.
