Default Y'all Tired of My Flying-wire Updates/Questions Yet...

...well, I'm tired of posting about it! Here's where I stand with the wires:

Right Wing
-.1* dihedral on the top with the following tensions

Rear back flying (RBF) - 450
Rear front flying (RFF) - 500
Back landing (BL) - 700
Front landing (FL) - 850 :-(
Front back flying (FBF) - 300
Front front flying (FFF) - 350

Left Wing
-.1* dihedral

RBF - 500
RFF - 500
BL - 750
FL - 775
FBF - 250 :-(
FFF - 300

Center section is .07 right side low

How do I make it better, start over again? Should I fly it and see how things settle out? All advice welcome!

I wouldn't worry about all those numbers. If I did, I'd put a half turn in the Left FBF and take a half turn off of the right FL and go fly it.

I'm assuming all the rigging boards show the same across the wings (no twists).

If they're not vibrating or showing any signs of slack, time to move on to other more important things...like flying it!

We checked the incidence before I started tightening and they looked good. Did put a couple washers on the left side. Think I'll started recowling it tomorrow and hopefully fly one day towards the end of the week.

It goes out of annual at the end of the month, so I'm hoping to test fly it before then.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Chad

Edit to fix auto-correct recoiling back to recowling...like I typed originally.
