Satya's blog - Horizontal Stabilisers

Mar 06 2005 19:00 Horizontal Stabilisers
Here's a shot of the horizontal stabilisers. First you glue them, then you have to hold them in place for 3 hours. Not! You use stacks of coins and a fairly horizontal surface and leave it overnight. Think of it like a car up on blocks.

The horiz stabilisers contain one set of control surfaces -- the elevators. (I'm not an aeronautical engineer, nor do I play one on TV or the internet.)
