FX-706 Sloper Mods: Stab + Elevators = COMPLETE!


Used last week's good afternoon weather to push through 4 focused build sessions; tried to keep hasty mistakes & dodgy technique to a minimum.

Paid off: Stab + elevators done...now sorting out control horn & link, tying both elevator halves to their cable run atop the vertical. Just a final skin of sanded, foam fairing over the hinge line & a mylar wrap remain.

Wanna weigh this assembly--just out of curiosity, once I get to the post office's scale.

Now to create that "M"-shaped, bridging wire + angled horn mock -up...I really don't want to rely upon some cludgy, exposed "Y"-yoke type dual linkage for the elevator actuation.
