    Those are SWB's that came from with the servo tray, but you can buy them separately. That tray was very complete, it came with pretty much everything, including the rudder cable.

    That's good to know since H9 quit selling them.

    Thanks Doug. . . . . . . :way_to_go:

    Last night I glued pieces of hardwood dowel in each end of the stab tube. Tonight I drilled and tapped holes for the bolts that hold the stab on. I'm not sure that these bolts are going to stay, or if I'm going to change them to a countersunk like I did on the canopy.

    Looks nice but I have never understood manufactures doing wing or stab bolts like that. As much as is spent on a plane like this to me it could be done better. So my vote is to countersink them.

    Can not believe that they use that method to hold the stabilizer on. I really dislike it. The stabilizer is not held tight against the fuselage and therefore can move around.

  6. In my opinion guys that is one of the best methods for securing tail feathers and wings. All my builds, not ARF's, are done that way.

    It does work well, and the stabs are pretty secure. Carf and Krill both use it.

    I did end up countersinking the bolts like I did on the canopy, it worked out very well. I also shortened the servo arms to 1 1/4", they look much better.

    Tony dropped off more work for me tonight, the wings. All I can say about the top wing is, "Everybody gone surfin' Surfin' USA".;)

  9. Dude, that’s how every Comp Arf I’ve ever setup has the tail feathers locked in. Had one of those screws come off on final, the whole tail wing on the right side Aimed down, and down the plane went, right into the ground, was a great flight until that happened. Lesson learned, I now cover those screws with a patch of clear 3M vinyl tape, so it only comes off after I remove the tape.
