Can anyone give me an idea of build times in hours that have been put in to build the Elevators and also the wings (not QB) ? Know I could probably trawl through some of the excellent build logs that are around to get an idea, but hopefully this will be an easier way to get the info Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I spent 71.5 hours on my elevators. That includes optional/ discretionary time for priming, proseal for the trailing edge, and making modification for static wicks.
As for the wing, I am 224 hours into it so far. Main wing body is complete through the top skin attached and gap fairings attached. Flaps are complete and working on the fuel tanks, probably about 60% complete but I haven't leak testing anything yet, LOL!
Hope this helps.

I spent 547.5 on both wings (non-QB), not priming except where Van's required, this included pressure testing on the wing tanks.  Used the Aveo Engineering ZipTips as opposed to Vans wing tips and lights.  Also included the Dynon autopilot servo for the ailerons and Dynon heated pitot with mast.  Don't get bogged down in the tank build. Just slog through it until done.  It's not as bad as everyone out there says it is.  Although more expensive, found the pro-seal in the tubes worked really well.  I was really liberal with it and ended up using 18 tubes on both tanks.  Leak test only showed one rivet with a leak.  Easily fixed.  Frustration with leaking tanks was kept to a minimum.  As they say, build on!!
