Before we proceed I have a short video of the finished plane. This was made just before dark with winds at about 10mph.
Later I will tell about the power system.

Place the balsa spar on the glued 6" line and use a small piece of masking tape to hold if in place.
Use a strait edge to cut away the paper. about 1/4" on both sides of the 2" ling from leading edge. and peal off the 1/2" paper stripe
The next step is to fold the wing back the leading edge will be at the 6" line.
Glue it together at the 6" line. I used a board and weight to hold in place as white glue dries. With Hot glue much time could be saved and you could hold it together rather than weight.
This picture is to show the layout of the fuselage Once the plans are posted it won't be needed.
