The Raketenwurm 4 has been optimized for the top level competition F5B. All the servos and linkages are preinstalled. The profile used on the wing is so thin that we had in the power sector to make thick zones. The elevator servo is located as far back as possible in the tail boom. A rod connects the servo to the ball bearing supported Bellcrank.
