3/ Cowl is held in place with magnets for easy access to motor.
4/ Ply motor mount as well as battery tray.
5/ Nice solid prop blades, held in place with nyloc nuts.

With my 4s 2650's it is still rather tail heavy (CG is on the carbon spar on top wing)

Servos are in place in each wing but need to be glued, I guess this is a good thing as you know that enough glue is in place.

More to come.
Thanks so much for that report.

Interesting that wings can be removed. Even makes storage easier.
