MisterNiceGuy's removable tail mod

For the tail section I chose to try something new. I added a aluminium bar underneath the fin removing the same width of foam from the channel where it sits. I also cut a slot further forward into the fuselage that this aluminium could slot into, this was to hold the fin down to the fuselage. The stabiliser then slotted in between the aluminium and the fin. To bind it all together and to fix it to the rear part of the fuselage I made a hole through the fuselage and stabiliser and with the use of a plastic screw (from a movie star wing mount) and a blind nut fixed on the top of the stabiliser and under the fin I was able to make a very secure attachment which was easily removable. To make it all simple, I installed the servos directly into the fin and stabiliser and plugged these into servo extensions that I ran from the receiver under the wing to the rear part of the fuselage. See the pictures, they should explain better than I can.

 

Thanks
