    Default Wing Rotator questions

    I am watching the Stewarts video on covering a piper wing and they have the wing rotator hooked up to the wing tip. Can some one send some pictures of how the wing rotator hooks up to the wing tip?

    If you have Stewart wing tips you just stick the pipe in the hole for the nav light, won't work on stock tips.

    I have seen a rod used through the hole the wires are fed through in the stock tips. I think it was just a steel welding rod (stick). It must be kept short or it will bend.

    FWIW, With the original tips there were a hole in the bracket at the end of each spar with which to attach the rotator, as I remember.

    Just to clarify, the rotator I saw used a hole through the wood bow.
