Installed and wired ELT

Today I installed and wired the ELT. It’s wired to the G3X system, so in the event of a crash landing it will transmit my exact GPS location to search-and-rescue. Let’s hope I never have to use it!

The audio alerter secured to the bottom of vertical stabilizer. This thing beeps loud if the ELT is transmitting, to help SAR find you

Installed the aft seal on the canopy

temporarily mounted the tail so I can work on the empennage fairing
