o-tailsaddle

This is the tail end of the fuselage. I have decided to install the rudder and elevator servos in the tail, and for that I have to modify the factory saddle and build a pod which holds the two servos. To do this, I have extended the saddle forward and marked the position of the two holes through which carbon tubes will fit; these tubes will be structural elements for the tail servo pod. Protruding from the tail end are the factory-installed steel cables for elevator and rudder (I removed these) and the tube for the receiver antenna.
