Ready for maiden....

As soon as weather permits..

Looks like a well thought little kit, nicely build and rather streamlined at the exception of the very thick trailing edges at wing and stab.

Did my usual foamy treatment: 2 to 4 coats of WBPU

Changed the stock prop for an Aeronaut 7x7, much lighter that allows to get correct CG without lead at the tail, despite using 40C 1800 mah 4S. This prop also draws about 10% more amps but should be faster than stock.

Wonder why they opened the cone, since there is no opening in the backplate to get the air to the motor....

I also strealined the wing bottom, using tape to cover all slots and protect leading edge. Wing bottom is now smooth as silk ...

I re-located the clevis at the ailerons servos arms 2 holes closer to the center, that should help taming the throws and increase the precision and torque of the linkage.

Very bad weather forecast, I might have to wait a lot before maiden....
