Started work on the Pioneer;
* The motor tests perfect balance with power and no prop...vibration free.
* The 4 mounting screws to the firewall are a couple turns loose.
* The end of the fuselage needs slight trimming for the tail to fit fully in place.
* Cheap packing tape easily removes the the splotchy stuff they put on as trim.
* Check the wood frame and add CA to any gaps
* Prop checks with perfect balance.
* Undecided about adding a air outlet hole for cooling.
* Plastic canopy is poorly cut and I plan to trim it evenly.
