The stock servo linkage is nice, and I decided to use it. I also had some aluminum horns to attach to the Hitec HS-5685MH servos I'm using. The fiberglass clevises provided are also nice, much like many jets use. Servos attach to the hatches, and the mounts seem plenty sturdy.


I replaced the stock hinges for Robart hinge points. One of the surfaces the holes were drilled a bit off (angle), so I had to enlarge the holes and use extra glue to make sure they moved properly. Other than that I'm happy about the way the surfaces went together. I did a bit of scale work to make the tail surfaces look like fabric, adding tape and some glue to get the right affect. Also added a light to the rudder (using a plastic bead).
