I'm checking with Van's to see if that will work. I recall that when I was building the RV-6A at the end of the 1990s, that the -6/6A and the RV-4 had the same ailerons. That's the limit of my knowledge, if you want to call it that. I'd build a new aileron, but have sold off almost all of my airplane building tools.

Not quite. The -6 Aileron is 48", the 4, 7, and 8 are 54".

I didn't realize the -6 aileron was different until today. Learn something new all the time.

They are also constructed differently, though that may not change the functionality. The 4/6 aileron has the skin seam on the bottom, the 7 is on the top.

Do you need an entire aileron or just to re-skin it? IF you can verify that you have a pre-punched kit, the skin will easily cleco to the structure nice and true. All you have to do is dimple and rivet. I've done this twice, and it doesn't take long.

If it is not a pre-punched kit, you may have slight fitting issues between your wing attach points and the aileron fittings. It might make more sense to just build a new aileron without a pre-punched spar (if you can get one) and make it fit perfectly.

The aileron pre-dates prepunched kits. Probably no easy way out for me.

I was re-skinning my right aileron this winter. Not a PP aileron. Vans searched and couldn’t find any non-PP skins. But total cost for new PP aileron parts was $311.22 plus shipping. Couldn’t find any non-PP skins locally.
