Happy new year everyone.

I finished the installation of the retracts and routed the airlines.
The intake duct is installed - I will have to cut it down later to install the fuel tank.

The EDF Version I'm converting does not have a rudder, so I decided to modify the plane and cut/install a working rudder for those cross wind moments.

The pictures below show how I cut out the rudder, added balsa to close the rudder and fin. At the end I added a layer of light glass to the rounded edge so it an be painted. Looks quite good after the paint job.

The Rudder Servo is a Hitec HS-85MG which is installed in the small box below the rudder. A pin from the rudder will go into the small groove in the servo arm to drive the rudder.
