Bird of time ARF elevators
I got to wondering,Are the elevator halves solid Balsa or built-up an sheeted.
I'm sure i could tell if i skinned it but if i do that i wont be able to fly it again until it's recovered.
So, has anyone ever broke one or have pulled the covering off to recover one that could tell me.

This elevator, is from the later model ARF, which had the longer wing joiners for the wing tips...
I also have an earlier model ARf, and the tail surfaces, appear to be the same!
Yes, this one got away, amazingly I found it almost two years later amongst the alders in a swamp...
Let me know, If you'd like any more detail, I can pull that apart some more for additional photos

That answered my curiosity.

A GENTLE squeezing across the center would tell if it is built up or solid.
You will feel a "give" under LIGHT PRESSURE on the built up.
