Move the trim lever to full NOSE DOWN position Open latching — hooks. 3. Place the mounting lever on the mounting lug, located in the rear middle console 4. Unhook the wing (either wing) from its hanging mount. By holding it by the wing tip pull the wing outboard on its carrying tube 5. Then walk forward until the wing is 90* from line of flight 6. Rotate the wing until the root ribs are parallel and push wing into fuselage. An assistant at the wing trailing edge should observe the smooth insertion of the two shear bolts. Let latching- hooks snap into links ! 7. Move the wing tip up and down lightly while the assistant locks the main mounting bolt by pushing up on the mounting lever. The aileron and airbrake drive units are automatically hooked up. 8. Install the other wing in a similar manner. The wide tread of the DIMONA landing gear allow the mounted wing to support itself and it requires no outside support. 8—2

50 Hoffmann 8 H 36 DIMONA Aircraft Handling and Servicing 8.2 AIRCRAFT DISASSEMBLY: 1. Aircraft dis assembly is performed by reversing the steps outlined in 8.1 8.3 TRANSPORTING THE AIRCRAFT: 1. For road transportation a closed trailer should be used. The components should be cushioned and protected against slippage or free movement. Chocks for all three wheels are excellent for this purpose. 2. The fuselage is transportable on the main gear and tail wheel. The fuselage unit should be tied down or blocked to prevent fore and aft and vertical movement. The propeller should be checked to insure enough clearance in the trailer. 3. The wings do not have to be removed for road transportation The wing remains attached to the fuselage by the telescopic-tube. When folded, the wing should be cushioned by a 400 mm wide profile cushion under the butt rib. This will prevent the telescopic tube from damage. An additional profile cushion should be placed about 4 in (13 ft) outboard of the butt rib. The cushion should be at least 300 mm (14 in) high. The wing should be tied down to prevent rearward movement. The rear shear bolt on the fuselage should be padded to prevent damage to the wing skin.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
