08: Tarot 500 : Tail : Part Three

This is part three of a three part series. In this video, I go through my assembly of the tail on the 500, from front to back and everything in between. In total, it’s a feature length movie at over 1:45, so I had to split it into parts. Part three takes you through the following:

A quick check of tail blade balance (by weight) using a pocket scale
Tail blade installation
Setting belt tension
Final lock-down and adjustment of the tail boom (including horizontal and vertical stabilizer fin adjustments)
Tail boom support brace installation (including a little repair of one brace that had an unglued end)
