Dereck, thanks for joining me on the journey.

I actually worked on the wing-fuselage interface today, when I got home from work. I'm making a portion of the upper fuselage into a hatch that will be integral with the two wing sections. The wing/hatch will be removable to gain access to the electronics and allow more efficient storage.

I will place two short pegs on the forward section of the hatch, to mate into corresponding holes, and will have a latching mechanism on the after portion. I'm thinking of making the pilot's head part of the mechanism, rotating the head to latch and unlatch the mechanism.

I also finished the elevator structure, putting a bamboo skewer into the leading edge and cutting away the remainder of the temporary structure.

Do you have a thread for your "Erie Times Daily"? I'll come cheer your on.
