Almost there...

After doing a fair bit of work over the weekend, relocating gear & fitting the cf tubes in the wings, it's getting there, I have also removed the 100mm nose extension.

The balance point is just under 110mm from LE.which is painstakingly close to 33% MAC.

The weights are now as follows...
Weight without balase & 1 x 5000mah 4s lipo: 4356g
Nose Ballast: 79g - It seems that for every 9-g of weight i add to the nose, the plane balances 10mm forward.
TOTAL - 4435g

I am going to refit wiring, and maiden.next weekend, fingers crossed.
