  • Links to Wing Hanging Instructions

    In the AviPro Builders Assistance Manual, Wing Assembly instructions, top of Page 12, states the following:

    "NEW (2016) ­Additional Guidance for drilling wings to fuselage.
    READ THIS FIRST, before the following section! Over the years we have seen some customers occasionally have problems drilling their wings to their fuselage. So Bob Barrows and Bearhawk Aircraft have written ​instructions​ detailing Bob Barrows’ best guidance on how to undertake this important task. If you follow t​hese instructions​ at ​this link​, you will have good results."

    The links to Bob's best guidance are not working. Where can I find this information?

    Thanks,

      Rob, that manual has been superseded. Here is the current link:

        Jared;
        I didn't like the idea of drilling the wings with the fuselage on the gear and tires. Too much of a variable. I had the fuselage blocked up. Couldn't move.

        I still haven't figured out a good sequence too drill. I already did mine and it is good enough.

        I made my wing supports out of scrap metal from the wing crate. Also the support for the fuselage. Free if you can weld.

          Thanks for the response, Jared. Please take a look at this screen capture video of my experience using Bearhawk Tips. I must be doing something wrong....

            Rob, can you refresh and try again? I've made an adjustment on my end.

              That worked! Not sure what the issue was, but I was not ever able to see anything on the BH Tips site, until now. Thanks, Jared!
