Thank you! I think it looks pretty proportional if you ask me and will hopefully keep the weight down.
I will soon be ordering the carbon rods, strips, foam, and making a trip to the hobby store to get all the balsa. Then I will be able to start cutting out all of the pieces and putting this plane together. I do imagine that I will probably take me awhile to fully build the plane due to school and sports but atleast it will get my mind off those things
Once the build starts I will be posting lots of pics and maybe some videos of my progress.
Last thing, this is going to just be the prototype. If it fly's then great but if it doesnt then no sweat and back to the drawing board.
