Still progressing on the corsair, got the tailwheel doors done (realized I didn't take any pics, will have to get some up later).

I don't like the idea of pull-pull for the elevator, and hence changed it for a direct pushrod. The rudder will remain pull-pull. In order to clear the tailwheel I offset the elevator control horn slightly. I also built a shelf for the elevator servo behind the cockpit (note it's not aeropoxied in yet in this picture). Not ideal for an access standpoint, but required for the geometry and having a full depth cockpit. The carbon rod across the fuse is slightly lower than the bottom of the cockpit floor and will allow the cables for the rudder and tailwheel steering to ride along in smoothly. I also centered the rudder servo in the stock servo tray.
