I built the 16" span Guillows 500 series 190. It flies very well on the 8mm motor and an AR6400. I can post a pic if you like.

I've studied your builds (more than once)

The 190 does have a very short e, but the consolation is that the nose has a large diameter. I will aim to get as much as I can into the nose.

Having some trouble with the retractable landing gear, its a very tight fit, I am going to try to modify the airfoil to give me more room. FW190 used NACA23015 and NACA23009 at the tip. I hope this will not be detrimental to its ability to get into the air.
