This week I made the cuts on the elevator for the hinge brackets, and then prepared for our composite workshop that we were performing at the GoldenWest Fly-in at the Marysville airport.
Here are the two elevators with cutouts where the hinge brackets will be attached.
Thursday, I loaded up the jeep with our vertical fin, rudder, an elevator and most of our gear for our composite workshop at the Golden West Fly-in at the Marysville airport. That evening I drove to Chuck’s house so that we could get a early start on Friday.We got to Marysville around 1:00 in the afternoon and pitched our tent in the vendor campground area.
Our tent is on the far left and the airport tower is in the background.
If you look carefully you can see Darryl talking with Martin Hollmann.
Martin is another aircraft designer and builder. Chuck took a finite
element analysis (FEA) workshop from Martin in 2006.

We ended up doing about 6 hours of demonstration/workshops duing our two days at Golden West. As usual, we had a great time and got to talk to a number of aviation and aircraft homebuilding enthusiasts.We hope that the 20 or so participants of our workshops enjoyed the experience as much as we did.
