Variable Incidence Tail. Some pictures here: http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php?topic=861.msg116749#msg116749

The idea is to keep the tailplane at higher angle of incidence (less decalage) for the start of the climb, to prevent the model from looping. At ~4 seconds the tail angle is reduced to normal glide incidence. Needs a timer that can be adjusted with sufficient accuracy for a short time. I used to use a Tomy, with extra trigger, these days I use electric timer also for my smaller models.
