That is a good suggestion but too late, I already have purchased a project QB and working on the finishing kit. When I made the purchase, I had not found out that the VS/rudders had been lost in flight on multiple occasions.

I have thought about that also but the best deal is to sell my project and buy a good flying 6 for about $40 to $50K and update the avionics. IMO, that is a steal and I am actually considering that.
