Brief Description:  Flap handle assembly

- Spent time looking at the C01 sheet to get the lay of the land

- Had to massage the holes in the support blocks for the flap tube. All holes needed to be enlarged slightly to fit the flap tube.

- Put together the brake handle assembly C01-03. After test fitting it in the fuselage I had to file down some of the support bracket to get it to fit properly.

- I also decided I will make a new brake handle and put the bend further up the handle. The bend where it is now barely engages the 1st detent in the flap detents. I want the brake to fit into the first two to be able to act as a parking brake as others have done.

Note: the fuselage angles that hold the flap rod supports are called on the plans to be drilled before installation in the fuselage. There is NO way the holes in the rod supports (also predrilled) and the support angles are going to line up. The plans should have called for locating the holes in the angles NOW, after installation, USING the support blocks to locate the holes. At the very least only ONE hole in each angle should have been called for.
