We suggest to install the control horn on the rudder before installing the rudder to the vertical stab.

I check and there are two spots back at the rear of the fuse for servos. I plan on running a Pull Pull Setup for now so I will be using the double horn. The kit is supplied with a extra single horn just in case you want to run your rudder servo in the back or run two elevator servos instead of one.

Its a good idea to take some sand paper or a dremel tool and scuff up the horn so the glue can stick to it better.

Next you need to cut the covering in the rudder so the control horn can go through. I prefer using a soldering tip to do this.

Use epoxy to glue the control horn. I have used thick CA in the past on this size of plane and it also works well. For this plane I am using 5 minute epoxy. Make sure both sides are equal.

Use the supplied CA hinges to hinge the rudder. Be sure to wipe away any excess CA.

Its a good idea to go through the fuse and put a few drops of CA where wood joints meet. The aircraft does not really need it, but its always a good idea to do this so the plane will last even longer. I also put a few drops going down the battery tray. I plan on pushing the limits with this plane!

Next step for me is to attach the landing gear. I plan on doing this tomorrow considering I am worn out right now. I had to finish a few other projects that I have going on in my garage. Hope to get a little more done tomorrow!

If anyone has any questions please let me know!

Here is a ruler laying beside one of the servo holes. Hope this helps to decide what servos you can use.

Is there a rod to connect the two elevator halves then?

There is a plywood piece that connects the two together.

speaking of carbon, is the carbon running the length of the fuse, tubes or a thin layer on top of balsa, battery tray is it solid carbon or thin on top of ply/balsa

well you are going quicker than I do my builds.

speaking of which I am glad I didn't buy this...I have no room right now.

but it is very tempting.

when you do your video, can you show:

1. upright harrier to show harrier stability
2. KE spin
3. blender
4. pop top
4. wall
5. parachute into elevator
6. snake if you can
7. 90 degree half roll turn from inverted if you can
8. KE loop

but a plain old upright harrier, as boring as it is, would be appreciated to show upright harrier stability. The wall will demonstrate pitch authority.

There are four carbon tubes running down the fuse from front to back. As for the battery tray it is ply with a thin piece of carbon on top.
