Horizontal & Vertical Tail
The tail assembly consists of:
w Vertical stabilizer
w Horizontal stabilizer
The tail assembly stands 12" high and spans 30". It's constructed of balsa and carbon fiber, with a lightweight clear covering of 21st Century Coverite MicroLite iron-on film. The rudder and elevator both incorporate balance tabs that substantially reduce servo torque requirements. This allowed the use of weight-saving, metal-geared miniature servos (Hitec Model HS-65MG).
