"Wow! You are lucky the wings didn't fly off! You must be living right."

Actually it is near impossible to get a wing panel on/off if they are NOT perfectly aligned with the wing rod and music wire. Any lift component keeps them tight but I don't recommend flying regularly without 'keepers'.

The flat botomed fuse usually allows the landing skid to hit first. This forces the rear fuse and tail feathers upward. It seems to me the CF on the top skin povides the least value (acts as a hinge) and that CF on the sides the most value. I think you will be ok.

Congratulations on stuffing an outrunner in the nose. The only reason I was able to go 45mm was the geared inrunner. Even then, it was a job.

Please post more photos of construction and finish work...would like to see the end result.
