Goldwing 26cc Extra 260 Build

After wrecking my GW Yak I purchased this Is Extra 260 from General Hobby.
I bought it on sale for 199 dollars. I fell in love with it the moment I saw her
They shipped it right away and she arrived on good shape.
I am putting a DLE 20 on her.

This is a very light weight airframe. Perfect for the DLE 20

It should be more than strong enough to support the DLE

Tonight I fuel proofed the fuse. While examining the tank area. I notice the landing gear tri stock was not tight up next to the fuse. So I removed it and replied it.
I realize this is a 199 dollar 120 size plane. So a little extra work here and glue there is worth it.
I've used Dubro hardware from way back when I was building kits.

This airframe is built light. I think the DLE 20 is going to be a perfect fit

I cut a hole in the firewall to accommodate the DLE 20's carb. I also pinned the firewall as well.

I installed the stabs I used ca because I want to keep the weight down.
I removed the covering in the center and installed the horizontal stab. I applied ca down the slot for the rudder. I then installed the vertical stab

I installed the DuBro hinges on the elevator. But overnight the right elevator hinges became missed aligned. I had to cut it off. And cut the hinges out. With the slots now being in larged I put a piece of 1/16th ply in the hinge slots

I love it when a plan comes together. I got the elevators installed and working perfect.
I put a Robart barbed hinge on the top of the rudder and a Dubro pinned hinge on the bottom of the rudder. These hinges will help carry the load. I am also going to put in the ca hinges as well.

I started the landing gear mod. I made a template from the rear landing gear former. Then I cut a piece of 1/16 ply using it.
I sandwiched light fiberglass cloth between the two.

I installed the landing gear and wheels in preparing for balance.
I used a servo arm for my choke lever. I had already had my choke set up from the previous Yak.
I weighed the wheels as they felt really light. Forty five grams
They are over an ounce lighter than the Goldwing 30cc MX's wheels
