Also, how does the tail skid function? Will it fill with snow?
Hey. I realized before I went to bed that I put the wrong side of the vitamin container on for the tail skid. Ooops. I added the other (correct) side on top with packing tape and I'm going to pretend (to offline people) that that's how I meant to do it as it has more ground clearance now. It has no ability to change the direction of the plane, it only serves to protect the rudder/ elevator.

The CG with the the little 6cell battery is about perfect, it's a little less than 1/3 back from the on the bottom and 1/3 back on the top wing.
I might add more batteries later on which will be a problem as I made the nose long so it would balance without ballast.

Looks good so far .
