I used Blenderm tape on the ailerons and elevator. I used 2 micro pin hinges on the rudder because there's very little space at the bottom to attach tape.

Still debating on the motor for this.
The cowl is hollowed out/formed for a 24.4mm diam. brushed can Speed 300 to be glued in. I believe the side/down thrust is molded/built in.

Graupner Stinson Voyager
