The rudder is not a seperate item, but the servo location and rudder hinge line are molded into the fin.

What size and configuration batt pack will work? Also, my friend wants to know what kind of glue to use, I recommended goop but he doesn't believe me.

With a fuse that big, I suspect any battery pack will work, but it's
probably designed for a 4xAA square pack.

What battet to use

Use 4 pcs AAA size batteries if you dont want to add the rudder on.
That is perfect balance and no need ballast on the nose.
Use 4 pcs AA size if you planning to use the tail servo for rudder.
CG is 2 inch to 2 1/4 after LE.

So does the fox use "standard" size servos? Not minis? My friend was planning on using 9g servos.

Ming,
What is the max wind you flew with the Fox ?
Is it possible to add a little ballast ?

Thanks.

This is a light wind sloper.
Good for wind speed under 15km/h.

ming , how was your new year ... hong kong would have had some great fireworks..I love watching the laser shows on the tv each year..

the fox looks great . im sure that many of us might try fly her in at least 20km/h given the chance , whats the average wing loading of this beutifull glider..

cant wait to see how others progress with thier builds , keen to do one myself

cheers

I think I'll be able to do a build that'll get this Fox out in 35km/hr or more and doing light wind DS acro. I hope, that's my plan anyway.
I've been working on covering and spars for this ship for a while now and it has been very productive!
