Back to the Seagull Ka8.
Electronics are in..........I'm using a A123 2300mah for a Rx battery. It's to big to mount in the nose because of the tow release tube. I put it in the front of the canopy hatch........there is a space in front of the dash panel that is big enough to hold the battery. It is the farthest forward place I could find the space to hide it.
In order to get the plane to balance I had to use 9.7 oz of lead in the nose above the tow release tube.
The plane hangs pretty much level. I'll get a AUW on it in the next day or two.
Even with the lead in the nose, I think it will come in on the light side.

The plane is an affordable choice for someone who wants to try aerotow. The quality is good for the price. Hope the flight characteristics are good.........10ft wing and light should be good.
