These flap hinge blocks are not shown on the plans, but I thought to include them as they will give added strength when the flaps are deployed in flight.









Plan detail for the flap control horn. Stock horn is 1/16" plywood. Again, I'm not comfortable with so much stress being placed on a very thin control horn. Note how close the hinge pin is anchored to the end of the flaps LE. You can see here why I chose to add material to those critical areas.




I decided to make my own horn from aluminum sheet stock (.064 thickness).




Finished product after a bit of hand filing. Light and strong. This should do the trick nicely.





One down, one more to make!
