I did it with the stabilator and rudder on (see my blog) then bragged that I was going to fly the airplane after having installed the stabilator only one time. When the time came to move the project from NC to Colorado, it wouldn't fit in the 18-wheeler with the stab on! Had to remove it, necessitating a re-do of the cable tensioning (an odious task).
