Once you know what changes you need to make the your incidence, rather than
shimming you can bend the tail boom.
- Place the fuselage in a vise.
- Hang a small weight from the end of the tail and heat the boom with a heat
- This will introduce a gradual bend.
- Periodically check the amount of bending with a straight edge ruler placed
along the boom.
If you ever need to straighten it, just heat the boom without the weight
