The yellow wire, spooled up for some unknown reason, is the antenna. On the bottom right you'll see a DC motor.
It doesn't propel itself by flapping its tail, and instead the tail vectors the thrust from the blue rudder as shown.
Attached to the rudder is this flexible white cylinder that drives it.
Those two metal wires went to the very end of the tail. You can better see the rudder control cylinder thingy here.
This is what it looked like after I disassembled the entire thing.
