Thanks for the links. I plan to incorporate the motor mount with a lateral spar. I was looking at the plane last night and discussing with a friend and I think I have a good plan that will eliminate flex along the center line.

Thanks for the information Bob. I prefer the pusher as there is less opportunity to damage the motor and the clear view ahead. I have experienced the climb with power issue and can mix that out with down elevator mixed to the throttle. It takes a couple of test flights but I can get 90% of the pitch on throttle out that way.

I have a couple of other projects this week but hope to start by next week.

Congrats JS. I am looking forward to the first flights on this one.

Here is a video of my Zijji flying from this weekend.
