Getting closer, today we get the tail feathers ready, fit the OS 52, and mount up the servos!

    Really enjoying building my Challenger without needing to look at the instructions, as yours are far better and more accurate. I’m on to the fuselage now and in a week or so, be fitting the tail blocks. I see you used a temporary scrap piece of balsa to support the back edges for sanding. How did you fix this support block in place or is it just a snug fit?

      I usually use a couple of spots of a medium to thick cyno, it keeps the spacer in place, but doesn’t soak into the wood enough to compromise the fin, and usually just knocks out.
