In this section we mounted the front aileron control torque tube support bracket on the inside of the keel, pilot side, with the flange facing forward. The front end of the bearing goes 18-1/4″ aft of the front flange of the keel, over top of the the “house” hard point we put in in Section 10.1.5, 12-1/2″ above the bottom keel flange. Three bolts attached this to the hard point, though we let it hang free on one until the aft end was located in the “whale tail” to get the angle right.
