Finally found some time to complete the Uhu today.

By the way Doubletap, thanks for your interest and input. It's been much appreciated.

The AUW is bang on 500g, which for me, is disappointingly heavy in comparison to the 450-475g that most have quoted in this thread. And, in comparison to Jurgen's 436g it's positively obese. However, I'm sure it will still prove to be a good floaty plane for some relaxed soaring.

I have set the CofG at 80mm from the wing LE as a starting point. To achieve this CofG I had to add 15g of weight in addition to the 110g 1800 2S Lipo. I will modify to suit after flight testing. Perhaps I'll be able to remove some of the addirional weight up front.

I have set up dual rates on my DX6i: Low rate as per stock recommendation; High rate to give me about 30% more rudder throw and about 25% more up elevator.

The plan is to initially test fly using the stock settings.

For the moment I'm going to take some pre-maiden pics of the Uhu in all its graceful and pristine beauty. Will upload them as soon as I can.

Steve.
