Brief Description: Tailwheel Back From Powder Coaters - Part 01
Finally got the tailwheel parts back from the powder coaters yesterday and so it was time to get The Flyer back in the air. Reinstallation of the 1/4" bolt that holds the tail spring was a bit of a challenge since I wasn't going to take the tail off again, but it finally went in. The rest was a piece of cake.
The installation looks really great now, in the gloss-black powder coat!
I went to fly after the installation, but discovered that the battery was dead... Waa. I think I might have left the avionics on when I did the new firmware upgrade 5 weeks ago when I took the tail wheel parts off for powder coating. I put it on the charger and hopefully the battery isn't kaput from drain down. I just replaced it last summer.
