Final painting

Painting came out nice. I had a tough time trying to balance with a 2S 1300mAh, needed around 105grams in the nose for a battery weight.

Bingo! Drop a 3S 1300mAh in

New adjusted AUW is 730grams with
- 3S 1300mAh
- HK 30A Blue ESC
- ASK-21 spinner and 9.5x6 prop
- Fibrecloth+CA covering
- Primer
- White paint
- Pilot
- New aluminum wing spar dihedral rod
- Stickers

The strength of the upgraded fuselage is amazing, hopefully enough for my fledgling pilot skills! I'll test this out on the 9.5x6 propeller, might have to swap blades to the 10.5x6. Hopefully the motor keeps it's cool...
