Here's the horizontal stabilizer and elevator, and one aileron. The ailerons are supported by the wing struts. Quite an issue in controlling them, line and pulleys. Flying wires are a must. The wing span is 22".

Found a project that I can build in the house, as Mother Nature is in control. Yes, I must be a masochis. This is a challenge. The plane is built around the wings. Planning on using a socket made from Aluminum tubing with tabs to attach the flying wires. The struts will plug into the socks. I've cut out the ribs, the only print wood with the kit. Planning on using Spider Wire fishing line for control cables. I'll have to make control pulleys to route the control line to the servos. C/G is an issue. Need some mass forward of the leading edge of the wing. Planning on fashioning a pilot from foam and placing the receiver in the torso. One step at a time.
