Smart V-tail - elevator or ruddervator
As great as my first flight was on my Smart, I felt like it would have been nice to have rudder control to keep it really straight on the vertical climbs. Would ruddervator be helpful in achieving this with the Smart V-tail. I was told that the torque under full power is really the problem. I've noticed that alot of the F5B planes run T-tails and no rudder, and they put out alot more power than mine does. Aveox 27/39/1 w/10 CP 1700 and 15 x 15 prop. Advice appreciated.
