Cut pitot and added connectors

Just got back from Oshkosh this afternoon. And couldn’t resist heading down to the shop to get something done. Amazing trip with up and back with Jared in his RV-14. Got to meet up with Wes and Joy and met Craig and his son. This was my first time at AirVenture. It was simply amazing but I’m exhausted. I think we averaged 7 or 8 miles walking each day. The airshows were amazing. Especially the night show. Best fireworks and pyrotechnics I’ve ever seen.

 

 

 

I cut the aluminum tubes from the pitot tube assembly using a tubing cutter so that they would clear the aileron push tube when installed in the wing. I added the AN hardware, flared the tubes, and screwed on the adapters. Then screwed the push-to-connect elbows on to the NPT side of the adapters with a bit of Loctite thread sealer. All ready to install.
