Section VI – Landing Brake (little bit of this & that)

Today was all about clean-up on previous steps, and prepping for the next few steps for the landing brake (sorry, no pics).

I cut the hole in the fuselage floor for the landing brake electric actuator arm (again, purchased from Jack Wilhelmson).  I then mocked up the actuator arm, both open and closed.

I also mocked up the landing brake hinge wood hard point (LB23) with the rivet nutplate. Once I knew the clearance required for the rivet nutplate behind LB23, I cut out the foam for the outline of the nutplate.

I final sanded the entire landing brake depression on the bottom of the fuselage.

Finally, I marked the location of the actuator’s top mount point on the aft side of the pilot’s seat.
