Pushed my memory button there Rob, the Invader was the very first successful flying model I ever built, mine went rather well about sixty years ago.

It is going to be tricky to drive the twin rudders on a model as small and light as the Invader, especially with the dihedralled tailplane. This latter feature would make it very tricky to use a centre crank and rods (the dihedral is also going to complicate the elevator linkage). I doubt that snakes of any sort would work. I wonder if it might turn OK with just one rudder working? But I'm not sure even how best to drive that. The best answer might be to build it 1.5 or 2 times and use two micro servos in the tailplane.
