Progress on the 1-26; Mike Shapira's Schweitzer Limbo

Mark Violet organized a mini-workday to try to get the 1-26 airworthy. It had flunked annual because the total energy tube was dangling where it could jam the control cable and because the elevator central hinge had too much play.

Hero of the day is Mike Shapira who refastened the tube. See how he did it at
