R5 Build progress

Dome Rotation Unit
Using 8mm drill, I opened up the location holes in R5's dome, lower corresponding location ring. This has made a slight improvement to cut 'wobble' of the dome. The dome will be a lot more secure and the 'wing-nuts' easier to fit.

I had applied some lithium grease to the bearing which has made it less 'slippy' & less noisy.


Foot work, No.2
Applied wood filler to join between foot shell and th now lower bonded on 'skirt' base.
These pics show the lower section bonded onto the main shell.

All edges were then lightly sanded, before primer was applied.
