Hello wonderful people
Just logging as i build.
12×4 table build video
Ch650 rudder inventory video log
Everything looked great coming out of the box, i only ran into 1 hiccup that has stopped me from starting the rudder, if it is a non issue im sure someone will chime in.
The inventory slip has a note stating that the vertical horn, upper bearing, and fairing, are supplied with the tail kit. However the instructions and also a possibly outdated video on youtube of zenith building a rudder fully, shows those parts being installed and riveted from the inside, meaning if i complete the rudder, and install the skin, i wont be able to install the upper bearing, etc. With the rivets being driven from the inside. Not sure if theres a reason the parts were left out i dont know about so im holding off until i hear more from zenith, phone was busy today.
Other than that, the rudder kit is all there, no holes match drilled or anything but thats a non issue (the old video refered to match drilling from the factory so its just cleco and rivet), everything looks good and im ready to party, just waiting on those extra (or not so extra) parts ive ordered, unless theres a reason i shouldnt need them.
Will start driling the doublers tomorrow.
Update- confirned those parts arent needed yet
