As my fins get beat up I just cut them off just inboard of the glue line and make new fins. You have to take a little off of the elevon too.
the servos mounts aft of the main spar, about in the middle of the elevon. I lay them down flat..... trace around them and cut the foam away. Note the ez connectors. That's .062 piano wire, z-bend on the other end.
then I hot glue 3 squares of foam for the servo to lay on, then glue the servo in too. I tape over the servo. This picture also shows you how the main spar leans back when you assemble the wing.. this is normal.
the motor mount is 1/8 birch plywood the height of the firewall plus skins, the width 1.5 times that. I just glue and tape it on. Center the motor up and screw it on.. use washers for zero offsets if necessary.
