Take a look Jamie.
OK...you can see the stand offs that I used to mount the nose gear...same way we mount out engines really.

Steve here is my bag,
Here is the custom bag with the added panel on the top for depth.
Here are some pics of the landing gear reinforcing.
The Plywood stringers running aft go almost to the bulk head.
I removed that peice of covering since it was torn but it's worth removing to get in there for reinforcment
Thats an ice cream stick and balsa (both cross members) that tranfers load across the LG. Between the inside reinforcement and this I should be good to go. It tore out at a field thats lumpy grass/weeds/rutts.
The motor mounts right to the fire wall.
If I want to really move the CG back I would stack 2 3S 1300's and use a perallel harness.
This is how I fly it with the 2600. If flys fine like this.
The 2200 location. Again...it flys fine. I'm not able to fly crazy 3D...I could try but I would be buying a new plane a week.
