I have adapted the rear lower part of the boom/rudder, so that the control rod for the elevator can pass trough it. The slot will house the horn for the elevator too.
I have adapted the elevator for RC use. I have splitted the elevator flaps in two parts, connected through a fiber rod on which the horn will be mounted. The horn will be inside the rear lower part of the boom/rudder.

Half way during the building process
Stabiliser nearly finished. The two flaps are connected through a fiber (black) rod mounted with a horn that will sink into the lower rudder part.
The same problem with the leading edge as with the main wing. I have added a small strip to the leading edge spar in order to get a decent airwing profile.
