    Rudder trim tab

    You can adjust the vertical fin as mentioned above. Or adjust the floats... rudder tabs are not a good solution. They just compensate for the actual problem

    Yes they will bolt on. The buss cable will probably work on either. But you need to modify fuselage (add pulleys) to route main aileron cables as in a -12 or better yet -14
