As the AUW seem to be low enough for the smaller Jet-1a spring airs I started drawing parts to be CNC milled at HAB. The G10 parts do add weight, so I still don't want to ass too much material, but as long as it's not behind the CG it's not too bad. Also the stock formers for the nose retract looked a bit on the weak side. When mounting the engines in the rear I also gain the possibility of haveing the fuel exactly on the CG, without fiddeling with split tanks mounted on the sides. Many of the parts I design has multiple features. The fuel tank holder also doubles as reinforcement for the fuselages bottom, where the nose gear retracts.

I like the way GZ mounts the steering servo, so I'm trying to incorporate that to my design too.
