OK here's the tail build section - few unusual features like on thrust bearing in the tail rotor and push-pull pushrods for the tail crank but all goes together beautifully. One gotcha is that only about half the throw of the tail is needed for control - too much inward movement of the tail slider can straighten out the link elbos and even flip them which could prove embarassing in flight !
