PT-20 Build – Horizontal / Vertical Control Surfaces
Posted on March 27, 2013 by John
The first steps in this project are building the horizontal and vertical tail surfaces. This is a simple process; only requiring gluing two pre-cut balsa sheets together to form the horizontal and vertical stabilizers. I sanded smooth, rounded leading edges on the stabilizers. In the photos of the horizontal assembly, you can see that I have hinged (but not glued) the elevator on to the stabilizer.
These assemblies have been set aside and I will begin construction of the fuselage next. I’ll post some updates and pictures of it soon.
