Can I tag on here with a question?

What do you guys recommend with regard to ordering the electric trim and tail lights? Should I order them at the same time that I order the tail kit, or can I, or should I, wait?

The elevator trim is installed in the elevator - no reason to wait. The tail light is installed into the fiberglas fairing at the bottom of the rudder. You could wait to install it, if you plan to wait and complete all of your fiberglas later.

sorry, still waiting for my empennage kit, but isnt the elevator servo included? I only see the aileron trim servo as an option on the order form.

SUPER INFORMATION IN THE RV14 WIKI... THANKS!!!

Elevator trim servo was included in my kit. Stein sold me the micro Molex pins and crimping pliers. Stein Videos on YouTube for proper Molex pin crimping and install. Itís been a while but I think the Molex pins come with the kit and I just bought extras when I bought the pliers so I could practice before doing the final install. I also bought a nice table mount magnifying glass with light. Helps if your 50ish or past.
Also good information in section 5. Be careful with small micro Molex, like the ones youíll be using. They are square and only go into housing one way. Again, section 5. Round ones push in to housing in any orientation.
Not meant to be a Molex debate...
