Rudder mylar gap seals

MYLAR TAPE between the rudder and the tail, from Pure Flight:








The red double tape coated place as close to the tail edge as possible. Starts as close as possible to the top edge of the rudder (red arrow) The lower part of the tape is then as close as possible to the transition of the cover part of the rudder rod (green arrow).

It is important to apply the mylar tape without bubbles or sags. It is best to glue this with two people. Hold the tape in a taut state and carefully attach it to the red tape.

The tapes should start together so that the mylar tape extends into the rudder as much as possible.

Finally, we use cover tape for the top cover. It is best to glue the tape in full stretch, similar to mylar, so that the tape is laid as evenly as possible
