Graham,

I think it has enough rudder. I can see it swing around quite a bit when full rudder is applied. My latest theory is that I have the CG too low. I currently have my battery strapped to the bottom. If I get a chance, I'm going to try moving the battery up toward the top of the fuselage to see what that does for me.

No, I didn't weigh the wing cores, but they are quite light. I didn't cover them or strenghten them either. I've found that with these lightweight planes, as long as the wings are thick enough, the foam itself is strong enough to hand the forces. I experimented with covering some wings recently with Solarfilm Lite. They looked nicer, but they were quite a bit heavier. I plan on painting this plane.
