"Cloudster" Construction Project Session #20
yesterday's Report 19, this picture of the wire landing gear with the cross
brace soldered in place was presented. An error was made in that the cross
brace bent ends were wire wrapped and soldered inside the wire landing gear
as shown below.
Using a Dremel cut off wheel,
the wire wrapping was cut down one side and then heated up and removed. A
new cross brace was made and correctly wire wrapped in place on the wire
landing gear as shown below.
This shows a picture from the
front of the new wire wrapping after it had been soldered in place. You see,
when the wire landing gear is laced to its 1/16" plywood mounting plate, the
bottom edge of the plate butts down against the cross brace.
28 gauge brass wire was used to
lace the wire landing gear to the 1/16" plywood mounting plate as shown
This shows an edge view of the
landing gear laced to the plywood mounting plate and why I had to change the
cross brace location.
This shows a trial fit of the
landing gear's plywood plate in the fuselage structure.................Tandy
