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?
Thanks, Pauly.

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

good luck

keep it under 210
