I am unable to view the image of the Bonanza aircraft. Does anyone know if it is a V-Tail?

Nani!

Yes the FG Bonanza is a V-tail model. This is one of FG's earlier models and I was stunned by how nice the model looks when it is done. I have built several and given them as gifts to Bonanza pilots. They are well received.

Also included is a Debonair version that I did with a conventional tail. The early Debonairs took the butterfly control surfaces from the V-tail Bonanza and laid them flat while adding a vertical stabilizer. Early on the Debonairs' vertical stab did not transition smoothly from the top of the fuselage.

Later models of the Debonair which eventually became the conventional tail Bonanza had a smooth transition (fillet) to the vertical stab.

So, to answer your question, when you buy the FG Bonanza, you get both the V-tail Bonanza and an early version of the conventional tail.
