Good morning Colonel! Yes, the 55's fit inside the airfoil shaped stab with 2 or 3 mm play either side. I know I'll benefit from the shorter control rods, but I sure hope I can balance things out with necessary on-board items and not have to resort to lead in the nose. The only really convenient place to locate the 2200mah lipo is directly under the CG, that means the motor, receiver, and esc is what I have to balance with.

I think a 480 will fly it, but I'm building around a .10 hoping that I can avoid the dreaded nose weight and also have power for anything unforeseen. Most folks could probably build this one at about 2.5 lbs, and that's my target weight. But if anyone can build a heavy airplane, I can - and usually do.
