Today was about loading up the fuselage on the trailer to haul it down to NC.
I started out by using the Fein saw to cut a notch on each side of the aft nose cover about midpoint where the openings for the canard will be located. I then spent a few minutes digging out the foam to create a channel from one side to the other. This channel will be used for transiting tie-downs through the nose.
I then spent a bit of time reconnecting the wiring (with the requisite bit of troubleshooting) for the nose gear system.
I then got to work rolling the fuselage out of the shop and positioning it into place for loading it onto the trailer.
I then wheeled the fuselage into position just on the edge of the trailer ramp, with all 3 wheels positioned so that the fuselage was on the trailer CL.
I then rolled the fuselage up into the trailer and secured it into place.
A few hours and one rainstorm later, I had the fuselage and canopy ready to roll!
With duct tape in all the right positions, I was ready to head off on my trek down to NC.
I’ll be down in NC over the weekend delivering the fuselage to its new home. When I return my primary focus will be on the house to get it prepped to sell!
