The ribs in my empennege kit, at least the HS ribs, all came pre-fluted. I did not think this was the norm - is it?? The job was done well enough that no additional work was necessary.

I had some parts on my HS that were pre fluted also (I think they were the
ribs but cannot remember for sure).

I am at the rib stage of my -8 HS and they are not fluted , but appear to need very little fluting,
just working with them to make them the best I can,

Hi Paul,

I bought my tail kit about a year ago. Definitely not pre-fluted. I can't
imagine that they would take the time to do that. ? Pre-owned kit?

I'm not surprised. Vans seems to make constant improvements as far as ease
of construction. The instructions on my RV-9A tail kit said that the
elevator horns had to "aligned" for drilling into the spar and end rib
since the holes are not pre-drilled in the spar and rib. Went I went to do
this part, I found that the holes were already drilled. COOL!

I work at Alexander Tech Center as an instructor on the tail kit program.
Some of the RV9 and RV10 HS ribs come fluted.

It was not a pre-owned kit. I bought it in June, actually, but had to take a 5.5 month hiatus from the project.
