asked the guys over at ace hobby forum with negative response
the question is on the ecuruiel
The instructions say to epoxy the horizontal tail on the body
if I do that it appears then the sponge holding the tail boom will be blocked from coming out.
so if I have to do maintenance or have to remove the mechanics from the body I will not be able to reinsert the sponge to its proper position
Am I missing something ? I 'm sure someone has found a way to remove the mechanics after gluing tail in place or does the sponge clear the horizontal tail and this is not an issue at all ?

thanks for the help as better find out before I epoxy this thing together

Tail foam
What I did on mine is cut the bottom third off, this then moves past the horizontal tail surface and goes in and out without a problem, I have not had any vibration problems. I was flying the nitro version but now have the electric version. Good luck Mark
