Is there any chance that some of you could upload some pictures of how your rudders are hinged and operate.

I am not happy with the design of my rudder hinges and crank on the plans and I am looking for alternative designs

would do but mine has fallen off so maybe that's not one to copy! its very simple, pin (bolt) mounted 1/3 or so back from leading edge through a hole on the frame. got pictures of yours?

I'm still building the craft so no pictures as yet. I just want to make sure I have the best suited design for the craft.

I was going to go with the PVC rudders the same as on my surveyor, but they're not going as well as they should. Not sure if it's the solvent cement or the PVC boards that is at fault. " couldn't possibly be my fault":o:(:D.

I have an idea of a way to do it, but will need to find someone local that can weld aluminium as I haven't the kit to do that.
