N5800 fins now installed

The N5800 project now has all three fins attached to the airframe.  The nosecone and fins use high temperature epoxy, the airframe is essentially a standard carbon fiber airframe.  Now the challenge is to assemble the payload and recovery, electronics, and most importantly, to reinforce the fins substantially.  The impression that I get is that the builder is planning to make extremely large fillets.  This will surely test the strength of such a method to an extreme degree.
