It seems like it's been a while since I've
got anything accomplished on the Cruzer.
There are a bunch of odds-n-ends that I need
to get done and I've been avoiding them
because they all require some thought as to
how I'm going to do it.
One item is mounting the headset jacks.
I've been delaying because I knew I wanted
them behind me so that I don't have headset
cords in my lap, but I wasn't sure where I
wanted to put them. So today I chose a
place, and mounted them.
I'll label them after lunch...
In my attempt to eliminate as much airframe
drag as possible, I've designed and
fabricated these gap seals. One closes the
gap on the top of the elevator, and the
other closes the gap under it.
The only time the bottom is totally closed
is when there's full down elevator which
wouldn't happen in flight. In cruise,
there's still a slight gap.
In cruise flight, you can see how the upper
gap is now closed.
