Build re-commenced with some tail work.

Cut out the smallest shape for servo frame using Dremel diamond wheel using a metal rule taped to fuselage as a guide. Next time I’d use a Dremel cutting disc.

Then epoxied in the frame and KST X10 mini servo screwed in.

The supplied push rod has a ball and socket joint at each end to cope with the offset geometry.

Rudder horn epoxied in. Note how the rudder is hinged on one side.
