MistrÓ DLG from Italy

Here is our DLG. The "MistrÓ".
We created the mold from MDF, and we built 3 fuselage.
During the coming weeks we will build the wings with EDGE airfoil.

You can see anything on my web site

Nice! Really like that fuze. Super easy rudder install.
Can't wait to see the wings.

Did you leave enough room for the movable part of the horizontal to clear the LE of the vertical? It looks close.

Molds look great!

There are a few mm.
If it is not enough (with a bigger stab) I decided to create a little U in the stab.

Noticed the long elevator pylon and the lack of space between the rudder, too.
Yes, opt for a bigger stab. I, too, notched a U on my stabs.

The elevator pylon is 5cm, the space between the LE of the rudder and the end of pylon is 3cm
