We have been busy at the Corvair College, setting up websites and working on spar details. In the past weeks we have formed the test ribs and added flute locations to the form blocks. We also “tweaked” the nose of the rib blanks so they form better. I’m now happy with them and will get the test wing ribs on they way. Below are some photos. You can see how the relief cuts have been changed and how I spaced the flutes. Also notice the flutes in the lightening hole flanges. This helps them lay flat in the vertical area between the holes.
We will try and do a weekly update – even if its just a screen shot of a CAD file or a concept we are working on. Thanks for all the positve feedback – Dan
