The rear mount is impossible to access so I zip tied it down.

The front mount was bolted down.

The tail secured with some EPP Foam.

Maiden Flight - tail fin not fitted as yet. 980grams AUW.

No vibration so far, who's a happy camper?

Tail fitted, how will it fly now?

Cool looking CF tail blades caused a bad tail fin vibration, so have gone back to the original nylon blades. All is finished.

One sweet chopper!
