Model Complete!

The CG is 40MM back from the LE at the fuse sides. This build will easily allow the model to get into the 200+ range. There have been some mods to go 250+ and hopefully 300+. On this one I glued the tips of the ailerons and added 3oz of lead to each wing tip through the servo bays and stuffed the fuse full of lead to get it up to 35oz. It is one pound heavier than a stock build. Very difficult to fly at low speeds. I reccommend to anybody building one to keep it stock at first and add lead later so they can experience the performance of the model at various flying weights. I have had one up to 41oz and it was too heavy. A really safe tradeoff is 28oz AUW.

Production is in full swing and all orders should be complete in about 8 weeks. If your on the front of the list your model should be ready to ship in about 4 weeks. Thanks again for your patience guy's.
