I did not install spoilers and may add them. Will use the Art Hobby technique to open/close...servo below spoiler, servo arm directly against spoiler opens and a segment of rubber (band) closes when the arm comes down.

Carbon in fuse at rear must extend further back than LE of H stab! How do I know? I made a faster than usual landing and the tail skid (subfin?) hit a small tuft of unmowed grass...fuse broke exactly at H stab LE.

The XL should fly even better than the standard BB. Nice build.

Wayne, what diameter spinner did you use?
