Ready to balance and fly.
* None of the control horns have the correct size holes for the pushrods.
* The Rustoeum spray paint went on the bottom of the wing OK. However, Duratex acrylic enamel being brushed onto the bottom of the fuselage acted like it was being applied to wax paper. A good cleaning with 91% alcohol failed to remove the mold release from the surface.
* There is some difficulty knocking out the obstruction in the wing to slide the wings fully on the tubes.
* Haven't put it on a scale but the plane feels too heavy.for a glider.
* Hooking the servo wires together and stowed in the fuselage is not easy.
* Will take it for show-n-tell at the club meeting tomorrow and will hear what the glider guys have to say.
