Re the plan and cut parts,have I seen that S shaped fin design in one of Peter Wick's articles?
Also the elevators.I was going to ask at some point about their positioning.I'd noticed on the Windlord that they were inboard.Do they have enough authority in that position or am I missing something.

Thanks and done did!

The only time I have seen elevators on the outboard was when they were mixed in with the ailerons because that was where the ailerons need to be. Other than that, they are almost always inboard. In this case, inboard is also the further most point on the wing so i would suspect that they will have the most authority there. Take a look at the AV-36 - elevators are inboard / center / furthest point back. Worked for them.
