That 2.4 antenna routing sounds like a pain. I routed the 72 MHz antenna on the outside of the fuse. I drilled a small hole (a little bigger than the diameter of the antenna) on the seem line behind the leading edge and routed the wire though the hole and down the seem line. I just taped it in place.

You got me on routing the whiskers for 2.4. Sounds like you are on the right track, though. Are the holes in the fuse located just ahead of the wing? Can't wait to see the pics so I'll know exactly how you did it. I wonder how other people route the whiskers on their planes with a removable nose cone.

Here's some more pics of the wing tip repair and painting. I weighted the center section before and after painting and adding decals. I added 4 grams of paint and 6 grams for the decals, 10 grams total. I couldn't resist adding the custom decals. I always add some kind of googly eyes to all my planes.
