Vapor needs a tail


Did you ever finalize the PDF for the tail. I have a vapor with a bad brick that I was using for parts. I discovered this thread and thought it might have a second life with a Sukhoi brick and this wing. If you have not prepared a PDF I will take a crack at it for myself.

Thanks for all your ideas

Speaking of looks, I decided to make a tail to match the wing. It looks funny with the round tail and the foam wing. The weight gain over the stock tail is 0.4g. The elevator is identical to the one on my Airbender. The rudder is adapted from the Airbender rudder.

I'll post a pdf file for the tail pieces when I know they are finalized and fit correctly on the plane. And, I'll post some pics of the new tail installed on the plane when I've completed that step.
