Is it just me, or is this spreadsheet not currently editable? For some reason, I can't seem to add an entry.

I can edit the inventory, but not the gotchas page. I wonder if someone has it open and only the first person to open can edit. Don't know.

I did add all the inventory from the bags to the empennage inventory list last week.

Someone altered the sharing settings. I have reset them so if you get to the spreadsheet through the link provided here you have authorization to edit the spreadsheet.

Thanks for bring this to my attention.

It worked that time. Thank you.

I added the mistake I made on page 09-08, step 6. I feel stupid, but at least smart enough not to make that same mistake again!

By the way, this list is an awesome idea! I reference it before each new chapter.

Chuck

Default 06-04 (VS) Step 5

This is for the "gotcha" section:

I just heard back from Vans and there is a missing rivet in the plans. The VS-410PP upper bracket only has 5 rivets called out. The bottom middle hole should have a rivet. This will be coming in an updated plan revision. Maybe this has been posted before, but I could not find it.

The issue is that the doubler is CS on the doubler and dimpled on the spar. Kind of hard to do that after the fact. I guess you could just CS later.

Default 06-04 (VS) Step 4

This is a reference for the "Gotchas" section.

The holes which the plans say to "leave open" DO NOT get dimpled. The holes are for the fairing (which will come in the finishing kit) and the fairing holes will be counter sunk (CS).

I'm not sure about that. I think that I used that hole later to line the part up with the tailcone.

I went out to the garage and that hole does indeed looks like is it used to align the VS when attaching to the empennage. I re-asked the question to Vans about the rivet. I will let you know what I hear back.

I got the same answer from vans. The hole in question is NOT an alignment hole. It does line up with a hole on the spar, but the flanges in the rear spar are a snug enough fit with F-01412 that the hole lines up anyway.


here is the quote from an email from Vans:

"I clarified with Engineering to go ahead a CSK and rivet that one hole the same as the rest of them on the VS-410PP. There will be a plans revision forthcoming. Thanks for bringing this to our attention..."

The support person that helped you was mistaken.
This is not an error... the hole is intentionally left open and a future plans update will make note of that. Because of that, the parts at this hole location do not need to be dimpled and countersunk. If they have been, it is not a problem.
The hole is used as a alignment reference hole when fitting the stab to the aft fuselage later in the build.
