FX-706 Sloper Mods: "But wait--There's MORE!"

I've now gotten 1/2 way thru constructing the stabilizer and verifying it's fit/alignment atop the Vertical. Currently sits @+2.5 deg. incidence, but too early for any fixed decalage setting.

I 'DID' cheat here: I've added a couple strips of CF ribbon across thinned wood on its central mounting plate, as the mounting slot has a glaring fracture/stress point.

A bit torsionally flexy, but not after I attach some wafer-thin, bamboo sheeting along its leading edge and a few cross braces. The acrylic plastic base material is rather heavy; it will all be cut/'fretted' out; cover will be either mylar or Tyvek.

Elevators will also be foam & safety-pin hinged and I've only sketched out possible linkage patterns for moving those angled halves smoothly.

I should be working it now, but I've put off posting updates longer than I expected.
