Thanks dears Smiley Didnt wanted to quit building that easily Wink

Now about the changes, well actually its very little. You could find a few pics in the beginning of this thread (the first one I built few years back) showing the tail mods.

I kept the Elev span the same but increased the cord for more surface while Rudder was completely changed to resemble a 3d plane. On the other hand, the wing was slightly modified too. The span is 48" (bit shorter to help with rolls compared to the stock 52") while the cord is slightly more ( 12" plus 2.5" AIL).
I have tried to avoid use of wood as much as possible to reduce overall weight. The only pieces used are lite ply...

1. Motor mount 3mm lite-ply firewall, 2. two pieces sandwiched for LG mount with bottom plate covered with fiber glass cloth. 3. Both ELEV halves have a piece of Ply joining the in a "V" shape, small pieces of lite ply on the AIL. Couple of places, I have used 4mm barbecue skewers through 4mm coro (behind the battery and just behind trailing edge of wing) for structural strength. Since the plane is not with me, I could not take any pics to illustrate the mods. I could do this next time when I see him if required.
