Stab, vertical fin and rudder.

Slow progress, I had to put a new door on the garage/workshop.

I built a stab out of 1/4"x3/8" balsa sticks. I pinned the last "rib" on each side with a toothpick, they are the most likely to get...

That looks pretty cool. I have a J-39 that I've flown a couple of times, it's a bit of a handful. I'm hoping I can get it to fly better, but this looks like a good use if I can't.:cool:

Well...not exactly.

I've never used a flat 1/8" sheet to make a wing, but I did use a 3/16" to make a elliptical wing with about 6 to 1 AR, it flew great! At first you would think, it's pointy why...
