Also, is that a working rudder? It seems stationary but some movements in the video seem to be caused by rudder control.

It seems light. Is that about 36" diameter?

Hi GooberSB, sorry that I'm late with the answer.

No, the skin is the model film, "Cab" color. The smile is black film.
The word on the back is printed on usual paper, glued just at several points and then covered with transparent adhesive tape.

The rudder is quite powerful. Not for usual contol, but for some tricks, like quick snap rolls or turns about the wingtip.
There is also a rudder at the fore fin, which works opposite to the main rudder, but it's just for fun, it makes possible hovering on the airscrew and funny inverted flat spins at about 4 revolutions per second. It's powered with a separete servo and can be switched off when there in no need for crazy flight style.

The diameter is 37.4''.
