I have watched a lot of YouTube’s of rc Rufes mostly built and flown by Japanese modelers and many of them add a little water rudder on a thin wire extension from the real rudder, often in clear plastic.

Having watched a lot of these you tubes I am not sure I will have the courage to try any water landings or takeoffs, lots of nose over crashes. If it flies at all I will be happy.

I have designed a new taller rudder just by hand based on pictures and the silhouettes in Thorpe’s JNAF aircraft book plus looking at my Tamiya 1/48 plastic one I built 25-30 years ago. Also increased the size of the horizontal stab and elevators.
