Here is another view of the motors. Posted by Hello

Next was cutting out some motor mounts. I placed the motors, universal joints and mounts in place without gluing to check for fit. Posted by Hello

here is a picture of the rudder glued and clamped. Posted by Hello

Tonight I am going to glue the second rudder blade in situ. As we did with the first one, the rudder shaft has to be roughed up to provide a proper "key" for the thick CA. I first used 120 grit wet or dry, then I scored with a pair of bolt cutters, then roughed up with a file.  Posted by Hello
