Firewall Reinforcements

To reinforce the firewall where the engine will be mounted, and to tie it into the fuselage and wing spar more thoroughly. Inside, the sides get two layups each, 2 ply of triax 6″x18″ which is laid up about 6″ onto the firewall. One is set horizontally just above the spar, the other at at […]

In this section we need to make a attachment point on the back side of the canard to accept the torsional load of the wing. In order to do this we made a jig out of 1″x4″ covered with aluminum foil tape to make 3″x3″ pads to later accept a bolt. First we sanded the […]

All that is left is to mount the battery clamps (aluminum […]

Canard Attach Reinforcement

For the bulkhead reinforcement we cut 8 8″-18″ pieces of Triaxial lengthwise, and trimmed it into an “L” to fit the canard cut-out. The sections overlap the opening by 4″ above and below, and extend onto the bulkhead by 5″, 2 plys each.
