I managed to get a little done today, I have boxed in the mast, started on the load share head, made an alloy UC up and started the boom.
I am unsure as to whether i should make it a tail dragger or tricycle UC?? could anyone suggest the best option or is it personnel tastes?
I have also noticed on most pushers that the fins are quite large, does this have to be in the propeller wash to help things?

So a few dimensions etc
Mast tilt back is around 8 degress and from the base of the fuz to the top of the spindle mounting plate is 470mm. From the centre line of the mast to the nose is 370mm and the boom has been made longer than needed as Im not sure on its final length??
Its weight as you see it with one servo mounted ,uc and alloy rotor spindle is 500g..which I think is a touch on the heavy side.
Regards Rich
