20cc Zero Tail Feathers and Tail Codes

After going over Japanese WWII aircraft tail codes, we'll take care of everything in tail...horizontal stab, elevators, rudder, servos, linkages...and finish with the tail wheel.

Install Elevators, Rudder, and servos on the Phoenix Model 20cc 68" Mitsubishi Zero ARF - Tail Codes (10 min 0 sec)

"The tail unit was of all-metal construction except for the rudder and elevators, which were fabric covered. The tail fin formed an integral part with the rear fuselage, while the horizontal tail surfaces were attached just above the fuselage centerline.
Each elevator had a metal trim tab that could be controlled by the pilot, but the rudder trim tab could only be adjusted on the ground."
