Brief Description:  Rigging the rudder and trying some tape

I was guessing that the cooler temps would be better if I closed the gap between fuse and cowl, but it did no such good. It is said that one of the ABSOLUTE rules in building an intake is that it must be in Front of a joggle or lip. Don Berlin claims to see 10 degrees less when doing this with his. I'm going to be carving a very low drag P-51 or F-16 style scoop that should deal with this issue a lot better and hopefully get some better temps. This will also include a low drag AFT section to get my speeds back up again.
On another note, I taped a small piece of popsicle stick inside the rudder stop to get rid of the left yaw I have and it was 99% perfect during todays test flight. I'm going to try and take the roll and yaw out with washer shims and resort to a new stop point as a last effort, but it was nice knowing it was only a small amount needed.
