Slope Soaring homage to 'thenated0g'

@thenated0g - my fuse is getting filled and tickled up - the wings are getting covered now - the tail feathers are ready to fit once the fuse is tidy - I set the wing mounts so the MH32 is mostly parallel (as best I could) to the tail feather mounting plane - still need to make my ailerons (plan is to wire cut and cover with newsprint (file my DLG wing) - so making some good progress all things considered - given the wings are removable I need to plug their servos.

my question is - how will we be mounting the tail feathers to the fuse?

i was going to use a combination of epoxy/filler and some light glass in the corners. Honestly my first time doing this type of connection as well.

@thenated0g - it looks like we have about 80mm x 20mm as a glue surface for the horizontal stabiliser, so maybe a roughing the surfaces and glueing with epoxy will be just fine - I think I will glue the vertical stabiliser to the horizontal stabiliser first - I see in the RR plans there is a supporting block either side at the join (will you be doing that)?

i think i have enough glass/carbon back there that just roughing it up and doing some epoxy is going to be strong enough. I think i would rather the tail feathers ripped off than break the fuselage off back there anyways. on a couple planes i have even used the red outdoor double sided table to connect things together and its still going so that could be a nice option.
