I decided to jump ahead and start working on the control system so that I can get a better understanding of the clearances that I will need before making holes for conduit and A/C lines.
I cut the push rod tubes to length and then drilled the holes for attaching the rod end bearings.
I 3d printed some drill guides instead of using the paper templates in the plans. This made it quick and easy to get the holes positioned precisely.
I also prepared the push rod that is assembled in the tail attach section.
I also prepared the elevator idler.
These are now ready to prime.
