There was a lot of room in the front of the fuselage! If two elevator pushrods were used, the engine servo could be easily reassigned almost anywhere in the enormous fuselage cavity.

Note the NYLON clevis on bottom connection. I replaced the metal flying wire clevises with nylon to minimize the change of the flying wires acting as antennae!

Elevator on the far side; the rudder servo in the middle; y-pushrod to each elevator half. Two elevator servos could've easily been done with one servo on each side of the rudder. The rudder servo must be centered for the pull-pull arrangement.

Fuselage is beginning to take shape. That gorgeous, huge gaping cowl is just screaming for...something...(see sidebar!)

Nice access to the Du-Bro motor mount. Very little dremel work was required...just access to the remote glow and the needle valve extension. The rear portion of the scoop on the cowl was removed and two muffler extensions were located there.
