How do the large model fin/rudder/stabiliser get 'signed off' Geoff?


See you in a week or two for more work.😊

I have an inspector from the LMA. To check the workmanship for the CAA to make sure it's airworthiness

What I was trying to get at was if all the pieces are inspected separately and are they tested in any way?

The front carbon tubes are 30mm OD and approx 24mm ID or the back end slides inside the front, the carbon booms break at the front or back and you need to rescue them from the bins when racing is taken place. I have a friend or two keeping an eye open for them, then cut out the straight bits!

I have a few lengths if you need something?
