Looks MUCH better with the prop mounted...

Guys,
What are you doing to prevent the rudder hinge pin from falling out? I've tried clear tape and gorilla tape and the smoke oil/exhaust dissolves the clear tape and the gorilla tape falls off after a flight or two. Looking for any suggestions.

Surely someone has a solution to this. Or do I need to start a new thread?

I just noticed your question.
I never had an issue with mine falling out but it would come out about 3/4” and hit the cf tail wheel bracket until I put a little Welders contact cement on the brass tube about a 1/4” above the little screw at the end.
On my 2nd 41% and on my 35%, I drilled straight up the hinges and out the top of the rudder so the hinge pin came in from the top. I used a slightly larger screw head and again used a little Welders to retain it. You can also use a hinge tape or packing tape on the top and it’s not affected by all that smoke oil that goes out & along the bottom.

Hope that helps.

Dale

Looks something like silicone or goop? I was thinking about something similar.
