Flipping Fuselage

I have been asked how I flipped my fuselarge over by myself to work on the inner wings and fuse bottom.

I make a metal bracket to bolt to the engine mount. This bracket has a  Chain Block attached to the front to lift it up and to rest on the floor to protect the fuse.

The rear has a ladder on each side and plank to hold the tail and fin clear of the ground.


Left: Here the fuse is off thew ground, see the lifting bracket attached to the engine mount

The wheels are about one foot off the shed floor

LEFT: The fuse on its way over. I placed a stool under the wheel so I could stop and take the photo


Left: Now inverted and ready to lower onto the floor

You will see the bracked attached to the engine mount is higher then the firewall ( or lower when inverted) so it will sit on the floor, and not the firewall
