Category: Forward Fuselage — Steffen @ 21:37 — Hours: 4.5

Wow, where did the last 4 weeks go..??!
I have to admit this daddy stuff take a lot of time! 😉

Ah well, I managed to finish the rudder pedals today. First I drilled the rudder pedal side plates to the angles..

According to the plans, you can trim the angles to save weight. Well, all it really saves you is a couple of grams, but I think they look better trimmed, so I did it anyway.Fuselage 109 [400x]

Instead of painting these pedals, I desided to aludine them.
