F15 rudders have different shaft thicknesses and shafts at different angles.

When I broke the rudder on my first 15 I able to get another one for free. I had to split it, remove the shaft, heat it and bent it to the right angle, glue it all back together again.

When I needed a new rudder for the next 15 I decided it was quicker to build one than butcher another one.

Make sure you get a replacement of the right shaft diameter and shaft angle.
