Short Description:  

As it turned out, the intersection of the trailing edges of the VS are not where I want them to be. They actually turn inward more than necessary, intersecting the rudder too close to the apex of its leading edge. It's not a real great amount, but more than I want. So today I marked the line on the right rudder skin where I wanted the intersection to be, just forward of the thickest part of the rudder. When finished, this will mean that the rudder is just proud of the VS trailing edges, thereby helping with keeping the airflow attached when the rudder is in trail. To do this, I applied one layer of duct tape and a layer of release tape to the rudder, mounted and centered in in the VS, then applied a staggered four bid to the trailing edge of the VS, continuing onto the rudder, and beyond my desired intersection. Tomorrow I'll trim this bid, again just aft of the mark, and will apply micro as needed to fair all of this in. Then my plan is to do a final trim on the VS edge, allowing for proper clearance with the rudder. I still will probably need to work on the rudder to ensure proper clearance through its range of travel, but that's for later.
