    I scaled down the Mustang and added rudder. Let me know if your interested in the steps I needed to do this. I have a 3/4 scaled down version without rudder added and it flies great. I haven’t maidened this rudder version yet. The power to weight ration is about 1.6:1 so it may fly a little heavier but should be fine. The first picture is for scale reference without the rudder conversion. The last is my Vanessa CG rig. You can find it on Thigiverse.com if you want to check that out here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3083713 It works for my F4U Corsair that over 6Kg.

    Hi,
    I like your idea adding a rudder. Would you share the tail part so i can print the end only and swap, please?
    What motor, prop, spinner have you used?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, I have also printed this at 75% size.
    It flies nice, but quite unstable for landing.
    Can you share the flight weight and COG position please?

    I would also like the rudder, can it be scaled up to full size?
