Lots of interesting details there. What a great looking plane!
When I saw the MPX connector forward of the spar I wondered how you were going to fish the wire thru. Silly me, it's got RDS installed in the mold! Nice!
How does the wing ballast work? Is the rear ballast compartment on the c.g.? How do you mix/match with the joiner ballast and remain balanced? What do you do with the 3 large brass bars? A short one in each wing and the long one where? In the fuselage somehow?

Lastly, I don't understand the 2.4G thing. You can't just press the antennas against the outside of a carbon fuselage, they need to be a significant distance away from the carbon, particularly any carbon with strands running parallel to the antenna.
