Thanks to both of you. So RCPC, you didn't use the pod - but instead used carbon, is that right?

I'm an intermediate flyer, and fly wings, but I'm new to hand launch and sloping.

I'm using stock battery and stock servos. It seems like since nose weight will likely be required, I might as well use reinforcement for the weight as much as possible. But I do want to keep the wing light.
