Next the fuselage. There are some things you should consider before gluing the fuse together. I found that I needed to make a cutout for the ESC in order to be able to connect and disconnect the motor. Since I'm using a geared inrunner I had to use the top stick. The ESC wires are routed through the bottom and you don't want to come up short or you will have to cut into your plane to connect the motor. All this must be done before gluing it together. Also notice that I glued in the motor stick. I used GWS glue for this so that If I should ever want to change to an outrunner the stick can be removed without damaging the airframe.

Also you can see in one of the photos the glue is evenly spread and beginning to get glossy indicating it is ready to join. The ESC is taped in place and the servos have also been installed.
