Those are for attaching the horz stab to the airframe. one on each side, top and bottom.

Give it to me, let me see what I can do with it.

You think this would be a good step up from my Super Cub? I've had plenty experience with it and can do about any stunt with my Cub. I just need another step up. Never flown 4 channel with aileron. I plan for this plane to be my first.

Thanks for any advice.
