8. Test fit the elevator halves onto the stab with CA hinges. If necessary, enlarge the hinge slots with a hobby knife. When satisfied with the fit, insert a CA hinge halfway into each hinge slot in the stab. Push a pin through the middle of each hinge to keep them centered. The elevator joiner wire ends fit into the pre-drilled holes and slots at the LE of the elevators. When satisfied, roughen the ends of the elevator joiner wire with sandpaper and clean them with denatured alcohol. Mix up a small amount of epoxy and coat the ends of the joiner wire. Install the elevator halves onto the stab with CA hinges, being sure that there are even gaps between the stab tips and elevators on each side. Remove the pins from the hinges. Apply six drops of thin CA to the top and bottom of each hinge without using accelerator. After the CA glue has hardened, confirm that the elevators are secure by pulling on them and deflecting them up and down. Wipe away any excess epoxy with denatured alcohol. The CA hinges will hold the elevators in place while the epoxy on the joiner wire cures.


9. Install the rudder to the fuselage in the same manner.

10. Use your radio system to center the elevator and rudder servo. Install the servos into the fuselage as shown using the hardware included with the servos. NOTE: Additional servo bays are included aft of the ones shown in the photo. If you plan to use a larger battery such as an 11.1V 3350mAh LiPo, install your servos in the aft position to provide additional space on the battery tray.

11. Install two screw-lock connectors in the outer holes of the rudder servo arm and one in the outer hole of the elevator servo arm. Loosely thread a 2x4mm machine screw into each connector. Install the servo arms onto the servos using the servo arm screw, being sure that the arms are perpendicular with the servo case.
