wonderful cool, flat calm conditions
Lucky so and so
Not had one decent flying day here since Christmas - too windy - so the Gladiator is yet to fly.
Will be following the Raven build with interest - you may be a candidate for a Billy Whizz merit award. Good progress so far and I like your eatable fuselage jig
As for the tail surfaces - if you have a suitable bit of wood then use it. If not, build them up.
