Default HS rear spar rivet spacing

When constructing the rear spar of the horizantal stabilizer, pay close attention to the rivet spacing in the area where the fuselage - HS attachment bars will be bolted on. You must leave plenty of space between rivets in order for these bars to sit flush.

When drilling the rivets for the rear deck access plate, pay close attention to the rivet locations in the area that the front horizantal stabalizer angle bracket will be attached. The rivets holding down the rear access plate could interfere with the front spar hold down angle.

The minimum number of planes one should own is one. The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of planes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of planes owned that would result in separation from your partner.
