What you might need prior to maiden

Is there anyone else that can tell me what to look out for with SSS that we all need to know? Has anyone made any air scoops or holes in the fuse for cooling?
Although I have not maidened mine yet, the only thing I found (so far) that I would call "necessary" is changing out the stock control rods. The stock rods are .032" and woefully skimppy for this plane (i.e. I only use that size is my micro planes). So, I suggest that you use .047" music wire. Be aware though that most LHS sell music wire only in 36" lengths. The length you need is approx. 39" or so. So, you need to solder a bit more onto a 36" music wire (or whatever you are comfortable with-there are several ways to do that).
I hope to have a video very soon to share instead of just talking about it.
