Section: 9
Hours: 4

I trimmed the counter weights and fastened them to the arm of the elevator. The bolts are torqued to 28 inch pounds and marked with torque seal.

Next I installed the trim tab. I cut the hinge wire to length, bent the end and drilled a hole for the safety wire. My safety wire is out at the airport so I will install that later...

 The piano hinges aligned nicely and the trim tab moves with little resistance. Everything seems to have aligned nicely and the trailing edge looks straight. This is the first moving surface I've completed!

I put together the trim tab servo mount and linkage arm. I need to get a wire crimping tool to attach the pins to the ends of the servo leads, so I didn't install the servo to the elevator yet.
