Brief Description:  Plumb bobs and FS Lines

Part of the weight and balance procedure is finding the locations of specific parts of the airplane. Wheel axles centerlines, Wingroot, and wingtip location etc. I used a plumb bob and yarn rather than chalk and it made things go really smoothly. All of the measurements were within the POH limits however, the Nose wheel was like 4" too far forward. I can't for the life of me see how the heck that happened unless the pivot location was drilled too high or far forward, but still 4" is a lot. The good news is that it doesn't affect the aircraft in a negative way but must be accounted for when doing weight and balance calculations. No big deal. I'm Happy :)
While I had the aircraft all leveled perfectly I went ahead and calibrated my ADHRS for 1.5 degree nose up flight attitude. :)

Update: I've ordered some REALLY expensive certified weight scales that I will be using to get a FINAL W&B before the DAR comes out. I can't take a chance of someone esles scales being innacurate. Too dangerous. More later!
