Keep 'em coming, Tim!  It is a huge encouragement to me.

I really like your vertical stab extension, and I'll very probably do mine the same way.  How do you like it?  Is it making crosswind landings any more challenging?  What do you have for overall height and how high above the canopy does it extend?  (I'm almost to the point where the turtledeck, empennage and control surfaces are the last major welding tasks to go - after I fix my wing mount fubar, that is).

My turtle deck is 4 inches over plans.  My tail post is 8 1/2 inches over stock.  I think the combination works well for my plane.  The airplanes are light crosswinds are fun but you have a lot of aileron on these planes  to help you out.
