After reading that it's easy to be quite a bit nose heavy with this bird, I think I'll stick with the hose clamp. Being that far behind the CG, it should help a little. Also, it's way more elegant than tape or zip ties.
I did all the reinforcing called for in the tail cone area, and sheeted the bottom between B9 and B10. Should be able to install the mounts for the fiberglass nozzle assembly, and complete the PTEG cone construction. Then, I want to clamp the glass nozzle in place and do a full power run up to insure that my inlets don't collapse and I have no air leaks.
