After a few hours getting the spar bolts torqued, I installed the horizontal and vertical stabilizers.
From time to time, I have to stop and look at the airplane with the wings on. I think to myself, "This could really fly someday!"
It took far to long to find the threaded rod that attaches the pitch trim tab to the Ray Allen servo, but once found, it is quickly attached.
I connected a generous length of shielded wire to the servo because I couldn't estimate the length accurately.
A snap bushing will shield the wire from excessive wear as it passes through horizontal stab spar.
The servo is installed and the rod is adjusted to bring the center travel point to equate to neutral trim (I hope).
