Bottom Rear Fuselage Sheeting

As mentioned earlier, there are balsa doublers for F20 so that existing lengths of balsa can be used to sheet the rear bottom of the fuselage. If you want to use most of the length of a 48" sheet, as I did, you can take the sheeting back to F26 and make up your own doubler.

The rudder pull-pull cables will be taken care of later through the stab opening and the remaining unsheeted bottom tail area.

I haven't mentioned this before, but the balsa WILL shrink when dry, and may change shape. Final fitting is done when dry.

Also, before continuing, it is recommended that the wiring for a stab-mounted servo (if used) be put in now. It is harder later (yea, first-hand knowledge).
