OK, I'm from Alabama... what comes to mind? 'Nuff written, end of that line of thought...

Getting back on track, this is an outstanding build!

Then i installed the nose gear. approx. 85% of the weight and 100% of the landing shock will last onto the main wheels, so the nose gear mount can be made very light. The standard solution for turning the wheel is a pull-pull wire setup and i think i´m going to stick to that. Unfortunately i will have to use another servo then.

PLease show me how did you build the tail!!!! Thanks!!!

Hey Jtenorio83,

well first i put the fuselage spars on the fuselage stringers. Then i cut the 3-part horizontal stabilizer and glued it together to get the v-shape. Then i slotted the depron and inserted carbon fiber reinforcements.
After that i connected the tail spars with the horizontal stab and glued it to the stringer-spar-fuselage-skeleton. Then i covered the sections with depron - one at a time to get a straight fuselage!
If you feel unlucky when cutting the depron sections you can also use a paper template. After all the depron shell has to be cut precisely so that there are no gaps!
After that i shaped the tail cone (the apu cover on the real one) out of roofmate (here in germany its called styrodur).

Hope this helps - your question was a bit general
