tail attach change
I bought an RV4 that has tail damage and basically needs a entire new empennage. So, I bought the construction manual from Van's.
After looking through the plans, I noticed that the way the vertical stab attaches to F410 is different in the plans than the way my plane was built. At first I thought the original builder did something custom, but then I looked at the set of full size drawings I got with the plane. It shows the way my plane currently is. So somewhere along the line the design was changed.
The plane was built in 1986. Anyone know when and why the plans were changed?
FYI. in my plane and the original plans, F410 goes from the bottom skin to the top skin as one piece. In the current plans there is F410A which is forward of F410. Well I don't have a F410A and it is not on the original plans.
