Spending time fixing my mistakes. I always make a lot of them in my builds.
Found that I had one wing panel 7mm out of line with the one that was setup properly. Would have made for interesting flight characteristics I 'm sure.
So I cut off the back locator and moved the front one to line it up. Of course this meant reshaping the fuse to transition well.
I rolled a paper tube and put a cone on the end to help route the power wires Needed to get it in before the battery box it glued in.
Cut a 1/4" ply motor mount, used blind nuts and 6-32 bolts for the motor. The mount is glued in and will need gussets to strengthen.
My removable exhaust cone will be shorter than scale so I'll paint part of the fuse as exhaust.
Internet problems from the storm now, I'll post pics later.
