Electric Cloudster 900 Project
Today was spent working through a hinge wire retention system that connects the elevator hinge halves to the stab hinge halves of the horizontal tail. Earlier it was said that the hinge piano wire was .032" in diameter, which turned out to be wrong. Instead the hinge wire is .033" in diameter. A DuBro hinge shown below was selected because the .033" wire was a force fit in the .031" hinge loops. One of the loops was cut off as shown below.
