    A)Those canards are only optional.

    B)Winglets can be mounted with goop or similar glue. They are also optional, but most folks seems to be using them and they protect your elevons as well.

    Thanks.

    I purchased the BayLinerPlates. Where is the best spot to put them? Should they be glued?

    They look like you can put velcro straps through them but if I glue it down then how would you be able to do that ?

    Glue the corners and maybe a few spots in between with goop

    Not the best photo for what your wanting, but you can kind of see where I have the main plate. I used zip ties mainly around mine, Velcro straps would work good too.

    I use 3M double back tape to stick things to the bay liners. This secure things down very nice. The wiring can be done with zip ties. if you need to remove anything put a couple drops of denatured alcohol on the 3M double back strips and they will release the object being held

    It's been windy then I'll get out here in Arizona. So I'm making a few sets to test, and will see how it does. Getting the tail moment back a little bit farther should help with lower speed stability possibly help out some of the stall recovery so it doesn't take so long . In The Wind this should help it track even straighter.
