Good job. I think the wings go faster then any other part of the plane, and they are my favorite part of the build. If you take the bull nose connections, on the leading and trailing edge of the...

General rule of thumb, rudder/tail fin should be around 25% of the wing size. You will never go wrong there. Don't add dihedral to help in the wind, it will do just the opposite.
