Many of you have expressed confusion over how the tail mount goes together. This should clear things up.
UPDATE: The best configuration for the Micro SSX is to have the longest tail possible. Build the entire tail section and mount, wing and motor mount/ battery tray assembly. Assemble the entire plane without gluing the parts to the fuselage. That means all electronics installed also. Do not connect the rudder and elevator pushrods yet. Place the tail assembly as far out on the fuselage end as possible. Check the balance. If you are a good pilot, you will want the CG to be neutral. The neutral CG is about ¾” past the spar. Line-up the wing and tail and tack glue in place. Line-up the battery/ motor assembly and tack glue. Check all alignments and do your final gluing. Make sure the P12 is not glued to P12A.

Micro SSX Tail Mount: Note the fuselage stick does not extend all the way to the end of the mount.
