Subject: Some more help needed
Can some one please kindly send me details of the cruciform tail. There is a rough sketch on the gallery with no dimension on it. Also how much rudder / elevator travel would you allow? One more thing, I presume the tail is to be glued to the boom under the stab on one side of the fin, therefore not exactly centred. Does it matter? Do I need to make adjustments for it? What battery do you use? Ahh... the part list on the downloads specify 1/64" balsa sheet - this proves impossible to get in NZ. Looking at the article / plan again I don't see where this is needed. Please explain? I bought myself a small / cheap second hand (like 1/4 of price for new)scroll saw. What blade do you use with it? You can't really cut straight line with scroll saw can you? Thanks Henry
