Only as a demonstrator, to show someone how to build a becker rudder.  ok2
He wanted to run one behind a kort nozzle with the actuation arm at the bottom.

Rob, you can make a "fishtail rudder" which is almost as effective but much simpler.
Just glue 2 strips one each side of the rudder at about 45 degrees.
This increases the turn effect greatly.
