Well, I've spend countless nightly hours trying to get the damn tail mechanism to work, or rather, to be easily workable by a servo... the pusch-rod had to be very small yet very strong, very felxible (going in a curve) yet precise, and durable yet moving real easily... everything i tried seemed to jam the mechanism and/or break. after many failed attempts and reaching near insanity, a hard plastic party drinking straw married a tiny tie-wrap, and they brought salvation!

now lets hope the .5 kg torque of HK's 3,7 gram servo's will be up to the task..!

I temporarely put some parts together..She's starting to look like a bird!
