13.4.2 Static Port

This entry is part 2 of 66 in the series 13 - Electrical / Instruments

While I was waiting for the bolts to arrive, I installed the static ports. The manual calls out 9″ below the canard and 9″ aft of the canard bulkhead. They used to be mounted lower and farther aft but I like the higher/forward position.

Once the location is identified, a .5″ hole is drilled.

The foam is opened up, masking tape is used to cover the static ports, structural adhesive is applied and it’s installed.
