The suggested 120mm distance for the motor was not quite enough to allow the cowl to slip over the motor and cler the drive washer. I moved it out to 125mm so the cowling fit properly.

The motor is bolted in place at 125mm, so that the cowl will now fit properly.

Side view of surface deflections. Notice there is no vertical fin -- just a tall fuselage and the rudder mounted directly to it.

The large tail surfaces are ready to be hooked up. The huge surface area allows easy 3D aerobatics.
