Removed the sticky tape, pressed it together, and used Threaded Scotch "Extreme Tape" on the bottom to help reinforce the belly while also giving me a way to secure the battery hatch.

Wild Hawk CG - SIDE VIEW:

Here is the CG with Flight Battery Installed but FPV battery not.+/- 2-3mm (size of water bottle cap) I actually find this CG quite acceptable. I was expecting a nose heavy bird. I think adding the FPV battery will pring it up another 1-2mm.

Wild Hawk TOP VIEW:

The paint scheme was to make it hard to see from the ground or the sky but for the purpose of testing I painted some Yellow Targets on the wings to keep visibility high at the moment.


To test I threw the plane across my lawn a couple times... The plane tracks well but needs a good clip of speed to glide! Going to take her out for a quick non FPV test flight with all gear aboard to get a feel for her...

Back in an hour......
