Champ Tail Brace Wires

... for a scale look and hopefully less cracks / creases in my tail feathers It also sucked my horizontal stabilizers up level and flat again, they were starting to sag (curve down toward the tips)... not sure why

.020" carbon fibre rod and foam safe thick CA attached in the true scale locations. I made tiny little pads at the 8 attachment points first with thick CA applied with a toothpick.These brace wires don't even register on my scale which has a 0.1 gram accuracy

The top ones are just shy of 69mm... bottom ones are 75mm
