OK - now home from travels and in a few minutes had this little baby together and ready to go.

I really like the wing / stab mount ideas with the locking tabs .... the dual rod elevators meaning that they can be tuned ....

I have a few items left over ... 2 clevis and two long machine screws .... nowhere for those to go !!

The motor mount on mine is straight with no bent corner ...







Only area I had to modify was to get mt 'pilot' in - had to remove the CF spar in the cockpit hatch ... cut out a section to glue 'pilot' to and then glue back in with CF spar ....





I put in a 1600 4S 35C Zippy compact and balanced just ahead of wing CF spar ... which looks fine by eye ! Remains to be seen what flight is like !

Really looking fwd to maiden once weather improves !!
