[79FT]: Building Things
for now, just the bare minimum

Started modeling just the very basics of the torque tube. The idea is to hang it on the fuse, attach the aileron pushrods to it, and check clearances in the wings (and finally get to start making them! :)).
Just a few screenshots today. Lots of time spent reading plans (haven't paid as much attention to Fuselage / Control Stick setup as I did to the wings).
Gladly, I had the truss model from way back when (I did it to learn SolidWorks Weldments feature).
Anyways, pretty pictures below.

... and model.

Very basic model of the Torque Tube (but all I need right now, minus the aileron arms)

And eyeball alignment check - fits!!! :)
As a pilot only two bad things can happen to you and one of them will be:
a. One day you will walk out to the aircraft knowing that it is your last flight.
b. One day you will walk out to the airplane not knowing that it is your last flight.
