RV-12 Tailcone (Part 7)

Reference: page 10-8; 1 hour

Didn't get much work done on the RV12 today. But an experimental aircraft is like eating an elephant, just keep taking on bite at a time.

Step 4: Route a string from the forward end of the existing structure, through the center of each frame, to the F-1211 Assembly. The string will go out though one of the stabilator control calbe sutouts and back in through the other stabilator control cable cutout as shown in plans. Return the end of the string to the forward end of the existing structure. Tape both ends of the string to the inside surface of the bottom skin.

Step 5: Route the WH-P30 Trim Wires. Start six inches aft of the F-1211 Assembly, route the trim wires through the snap bushing. Route the trim wires inside the J-Stiffeners 'hook' of the F-1281-L Lower left skin to the forward edge of the existing structure. At the holes provided in the J-stiffener aft of the F-1208 Fuse Frame secure the trim wires using plastic wraps. Coil the remainder of the trim wires and secure the coil to the inside of the lower left skin with tape.
