Default Converted Black Horse F4U Corsair

Nice job done by Dave here on his Black Horse F4U Corsair. 12S power to a belt driven prop.

I have a question. Did you use the stock torque rod for the rudder ?
I am ready to maiden mine, but I realized that the rudder is too flimsy. I just use my finger, flicked the rudder and it oscillates easily. I'm thinking about cutting off the CA hinge and install a bigger gauge piano wire. I afraid that the rudder will flutter violently in the air.
Thank you.
