I had a surprise morning off from work due to some cancellations, so I spent a couple of hours working on a trailing edge support for the optional aluminum panel that goes under the door. I like the idea of using this panel for two main reasons. One is to make for a place to attach the lower strut fairing. The other is to protect the fabric in a high-traffic area. I didn’t really think of a good way to mount the aluminum angle support that the avipro manual describes. Some other builders have been able to figure out good ways to do it, so I picked up some 3/4″ angle and started working on making a piece.
The aluminum piece turned out nice enough, but I still wasn’t able to come up with a method of attachment that I liked.
Here is a shot of the panel that I was talking about earlier that I would like to rebuild.
