Having the “Oregon Mirror Image” issue sorted
out, work began on the RV-12’s right flaperon. The assembly procedure
incorporated on the left flaperon worked out quite well, so the exact procedure
will be utilized for assembling the right flaperon. That process was well
documented for the left flaperon so just posting assembly photos for the right
flaperon. However, the right flaperon requires flip-flopping all the nose ribs
from their relative positions on the left flaperon. Think “Oregon mirror image”.
