LiteStik Assembly Clarification Needed

I am not sure I understand where the fuse should be attached to stab...centered on centerline? That will have vertical stab offset slightly to the left. Left edge of fuse aligned with centerline? That would have vertical stab very nearly centered, but fuse would not be centered with respect to the stab.

The stab somewhat centered, the fin off set somewhat. That's to say it doesnot really matter on the litestik.

If I remember correctly, the horizontal stab was centered on the fuse, the vertical stab was cemented on the right, looking from the rear. Just make sure it's in the same plane as the wing, and go fly.

ChrisD is right. I have a 2X2 glider and the rudder is just attached to the side of the boom with the stab centered, no problem.

Sorta rates up there with only having an elevator surface on one side of the stab. First time I saw one I just knew it wouldn't fly right.

Keep 'em hummin'
