The instructions don't really say when to tighten the individual connections on these parts, so I had to project my mind into the future and determine on my own which parts are OK to tighten now. On the parts that I don't tighten now, I make a note to myself in my log of "things to do later".

The markings I made on this tool will help me position the aileron in the neutral position tomorrow.
