I positioned the pocket in the aileron bay by inserting the driveshaft through the aileron and pocket giving me perfect alignment. Note: The end of the drive shaft is not bent at this time.

Using a pencil, I mark the pockets exact position in the bay.

The balsa within the scribed area was carefully removed so as to ensure the pocket will fit snugly.

A test fit of the pocket.

The pocket is fully seated and flush against the aileron's leading edge. The LE of the aileron will be beveled later to allow for the control surface to deflect up and down.

The pocket is permanently epoxied into position.
