Hey Rick,

I have started a build thread for the Ikarus a Jilles Smit design. The build thread will keep me honest.

Progress is slow at the moment . . .

Cables are all "crossed"

Meaning:
Left servo is for right elevator, right servo is for left elavator
Top side servo arm, connects to lower end of elevator drive
Lower side servo arm, connects to top end of elevator drive
Left hand side, rudder-servo arm, connects to right hand side rudder
Right hand side, rudder-servo arm, connects to left hand side rudder

So all wires/cables runs (without intervering) through the narrow fuselage at the rear

Goal: saving weight of three servo's at the far end of the fuselage, with it saving "some" balance weight in the nose and saving total weight.
