Glad to see this thread pick up again. It has inspired me to finally get mine re-rigged and back in the air. Finished it last night, so hopefully the wind will back off a little for the weekend.

This plane comes with a water rudder, but differential throttle steering is much more effective. There are two ways to do this. If you don't have a programmable radio you can use a v-tail mixer. I...
