    Solid aluminum step. 3/16" dia. It is removable just by opening the door and loosening a bolt. If it gets bumped, no sweat, it will just swing back.

          Awesome project! Put me on the list for one for sure! This is the first airplane I flew on for a 16th birthday present! I will get in contact through the website and continue to follow along here!

            Awesome Jason! and thanks for following.
            Again, I got a little carried away with building the right wing. It was so addicting that I just couldn't pull my self off of it. LOL

              Lets see, where did I leave off? Ok... The rudder torque rod is from 3/8" dia. thick wall aluminum with a 3/16" dia. solid rod. In order to get the throw (travel) a 4-40 ball link "ball" will be soldered onto a 4-40 stud bolt for the control horn. The head of the socket head bolt and cone wedge spacer will get in the way of the required travel. stay tuned for that....

                So while the epoxy is drying on the above step. I decided now is a great time to glue on the base plate with the mounting lugs. This is from 1/8" thick birch aircraft ply. I've seen these made out of lite ply on too many ARF models and they would break off easy. Then a little carving and sanding. Boy, contest balsa sands like butta!

                  Hinging and installing onto fuselage. I changed the aluminum tubes to now be carbon fiber tubes.

                    So... the fin and rudder is removable, but remember the servo is mounted in the fuselage tail cone. So by removing the tail cone and unhooking the Sullivan aluminum removable ball link is a jiffy. The ball links and rudder pushrod will be included in the kit.

                      Awesome Gunny. I tried to send an email a couple of times, but it might be getting kicked over to spam, which happen a lot with my yahoo email. Anyways, I will give you a call tomorrow. Looking forward to getting one of these kits!

                      Well, that pretty sums it up for the fin and rudder.

                        Now the stab and elev construction begins. 3 sheets of 1/2" thick balsa needs to cut out. Quick work of this is done on the band saw. Rough trimming only is required and the parts will be sanded after they are glued to the tail. Contest balsa carves and sands really nice and fast. Picture 3 shows the elev servo mounts. Access is through the the root opening. The last picture is showing a balsa horn support blocks. (top and bottom.

                          A little contour sanding of the L.E. cap.
                          Cutting joiner tubes (now will be carbon fiber) to length.
                          Making 3/32" thk. balsa skins.
                          Gluing on with sand bag weights.
                          Top sheeting done.
