Myself and others have held off on attaching the tail cone until late in the build. I actually brought the tail cone close to the fuselage and canted it at an angle so I could sit on a rolling stool while installing the auto pilot roll servo & wiring. Having the ability to stand and lean in a little to install the ADAHRS and associated wires along with pitot/static/AOA tubing the wiring made the task much easier than trying to do all that while crawling into the tail cone after mated to the fuselage ... at least for me.
Not sure how that will work with the new routing of the fuel system for the 912iS but I bet you could work around that easily enough.
RV-12 Wings, Empennage, Fuselage, Finishing, Avionics and Powerplant kits all completed
Dues paid until September 2019
