DSing 2m Carbon Blade, Vtail Suggestions
I have a new 2m Carbon Blade, That I'm putting together for just DSing.
Is that single screw going to hold that Vtail in place?, or should I do some other kind of hold down?
Any 2m blade DS'ers out there?

dab of goop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TRUST ME a DAB of goop and your safe and sound.... and a little bit of toulene or xylene dripped on it can take it off later if you need to make repairs or ship

I drilled and re tapped the screw, new size was 6/32, used goop to keep it in place then added a band of 2oz cloth on both sides of the tail, make sure you fill in the void on the leading edge of the elevator with a bit of epoxy, this will add ridgitity to the surface itself, mine were pretty flexy, some have a big enough gap for a small aluminim tube to be epoxied in
keep it under 210

My screw began to loosen up a bit over time untill i had a secent wiggle, what i did was do all my aligning double check tripple check then mark then epoxy with microballons to glue it in ther good...then 40ooplecheck youre measurements for incidence..etc and let it set,
Make sure to check for proper c.g after
