Cut access hatch above elevator this allows for bellcrank mounted to cut out in elevator center.
The black lines in elev. are carbon rods filling a slot that I made to fit plastic tubes for rudder control rods.
The control rods end with Quik-Links attached to a cut down Servo arm (HS-50).
The white arm seen sticking out of the main rudder is one half of the arm, the rest is buried in the notch cut on the inner rudder face.
I mounted the servo arm to a cut down mini ez connector epoxied to a small carbon flat then epoxied the flat in the notch.
I used a longer arm piece to attach to the rudder surface.
