V Shark v tail

I always liked the results of glow v tail planes of past so why not make one out of a Nanoplanes Speed Shark.
Ohh, but this one will not just have a v tail, but a host of changes.. a real kit bashin' for sure!
The target auw of 20 oz will get the full might of the 3100 kv Microdan in the 25 oz 1M.
It will be silly fast(er) and even more on rails?

Tail formed and sanded.
Cutting down fuselage sides.
Old wing is helping for references.
I think this one will be special...

Moving along..
Framed up a bit.
Will get "stinger" tail extension, triangle stock for rounding all the way back, and a mini bottom fin.
I'm getting excited.

Next up.. T Shark!
I wanted to show in video how good of a rudder effect the V can generate.. stall turns, spins, and other gyrations come to mind.
Also, if for any reason there is a tendency to pull in any direction when HARD on the elevator, it can be tuned via "elevator differential."

Good question..

Yes. Put 3/4" at the base of two stock vertical fins.
Set at 57 degrees.
