Join the tails

Joining the tails was pretty easy work, especially considering that all you really have to do is join the vertical, all the work on the stab is done. I decided to mount the vertical in the "convential" manner instead of on the side of the boom. This was mainly because I have no experience with side-slung tails and it still has that "that doesn't look quite right" factor to me. I also wanted to try doing a patchless install on the tails, no glass to help bear the loads. This seems to be catching on lately and holding up to some strong launchers so I decided to give it a shot. I think it turned out very good.

With the tails mounted, the build is done, time to program it, balance it, and go fly!
