Some more pics of progress so far. Nose section is completed, just needs sanding and filling to shape. Who said planking was theraputic??
I was going to use mini servos mounted at the rear for rudder and elevator but with the weight of 2 minifans and skinning yet to be done i have now opted to mount standard servos up front with snakes to rear controls to keep weight forward, hopefully the cells will also move some more weight forward aswell. By the way, how far from the fans can you have the cells? Is it better to have longer battery to controller leads or longer controller to motor leads?
