I had a chance to glue the trailing edge ribs to the elevator spar today. I was happy with the alignment from last weekend so everything was a go. To clamp the ribs to the spar, I used the method outlined in the Falco manual to offset the clamping pressure and transfer it to the ribs. With all of the ribs clamped down at once, I also glued the trim tab closing spar at the same time. I used some string to add some clamping pressure for that spar.
