Sonex 1404

Posts Tagged ‘drive horn

I picked up the Sonex tail kit at the builders workshop in early February 2010 and started off the build in earnest only about a week ago. I would have started earlier but for the fact that every attempt at progress highlighted the lack of a particular tool. A drill press once, a band saw the next time, and a bench vice another.

I finally finished the rudder drive horn assembly today. The most challenging part was the bend in the machined piece which I achieved with the help of some bolts in a vice. The rest of the assembly was straightforward.

As it turns out, I’ve started with the plan SNX-T13. I picked it because it seemed the simplest, but who knows, 13 might turn out to be lucky too.
