It's not going to build itself

I got the wings joined and glassed together. I also made a profile template of the wing root. I was about to mark the fuse and tail incidence, when I remembered that I gave my set of blocks to Byron the other day.
Yesterday afternoon, I broke out the tablesaw and made some more.

Hinging and beveling of control surfaces done. I made some torque rods for the ailerons. Iím going to go with a single servo notched into the wing. Not sure about the elevator servo location yet. Probably try to shoe horn it in ahead of the leading edge of the wing. Thinking about a cable for the elevator instead of a carbon rod, to maybe tuck it up on the side of the fuse.

Thinking about servo placement. Iím thinking the angled side by side, is better. I wonít have to move the elev servo to get in the nose of the fuse.

Thanks guys. I ordered some servos from Aloft last night. I was thinking about an HS-82 on the ailerons and an 81 for the elevator. Probably could go lighter?

I ordered some MGs from Aloft. Just thinking of being impatient, and using what I have.
