Now that is a tail skid.

Looking at the photos.. you definately want to stay away from those funky bends in the exposed pushrods for the rudder and elevator connections. If you go with this ARF... the elevator is single piece and the rudder is angled up at the bottom.. A good mod would be to run the rod straight out the back of the fuselage and center the horn on the elevator. This way it's a straight shot out the back, and concealed. This is done on some of the more basic sailplanes to reduce drag getting all that linkage out of the airflow. The rudder pushrod could also be straightened out by lowering the horn.
