A little update of sorts..I de died to build up my vertcail stab and also decided to rebuild my horizontal as well...
The reason is the servos will fit in the stabs themselves omitting the long linkages.
I also built up a battery ele tronics tray so my fat fingers don't destroy the jet changing out batteries ect..
Nearly time to add some skins now..
The wing profile is done and ready for servos and skins as well....
A few pics to show progress....

small slot behind the carbon for the servo to slide in there...
You can see the servo arm sticking out of the vertical stab.this will be the only thing visable besides the wire linkage.
General placement of elevator servos
