    Brad, I live in Bryan, Ohio. Thank you for the offer. I would be worried that your rudder might get damaged during shipping.
    I'll try and figure what freight might be. Thanks, Neil

    Randy,
    Very interesting.  Are you saying your C model fuselage has been stretched 18"? My rudder is 24" at the widest point. What is the width of yours. Also is yours the round style rudder?

    Modified Rudder
     
    On my model C I have a round rudder has been increased in size from 18" to 24". It's in perfect condition. I would like to make a trade for a stock rudder. If there is interest here I'll post some pictures. My fuselage has been stretched 16" and I feel this is to much rudder with a stretched fuselage. Neil 419-551-1812

    Jim, The ailerons and rudder were modified because he was going to put the plane on floats, also the fuselage has been lengthen by 16".  Your right about the feet. It takes plenty of rudder for sure. This is my second Avid so I have a pretty good idea how it should fly. I think your right about the ailerons causing the problem in the first place. So I started to remove the extensions yesterday. I'll test fly it tomorrow. If that doesn't help I'll start thinking about putting on a stock rudder. You stated the stock rudder is 18" at the widest point. This rudder is 24". Maybe I can pick up a round rudder from someone on this forum. Thanks, Jim and others for your help, Neil

  13. Neil added a post in a topic stock round rudder   


    I lengthened the rudder horns and that reduced the rudder pressure and movement some.  The trailing edge of the ailerons have been increased by 1 1/2 inch and I'm wondering if this could be adding to my adverse yaw. I have the F7A mod and can't say that it helped much. I can remove the extensions by drilling out the rivets. What do you all think ? Neil

    stock round rudder
    Would someone here be able to give me the dimension of the round rudder, mainly interested in the width. I have a stretched fuselage with an over sized rudder and it's to much rudder authority. I'm thinking of changing the rudder back to stock. The previous owner was going to put the plane on floats so the rudder was enlarged. Thanks, Neil
