So anyway, my build uses the openpilot CC FC with a Orange (Spektrum) satellite RX plugged into one of the serial ports. That makes for a really low profile package of FC and RX. I used HK 1811 motors and the finished build uses Proton 10A ESCs. I used a GWS Pico servo on the tail

If you paint the frame like I did make sure you carefully remove the paint from the holes for the tail pivot shaft and the mating surfaces between the tail and the moving tail motor mount.

Servo tape didn't hold the servo rigidly enough so I double wire tied that along with the tape.
Hi AlPackin,

I like the connector you have on the servo that connect to the pin. Where can i get that part?
