Did it myself

Hi Konrad -

Here's the picture of how I did it. The folded battery has to be squeezed in, flexing the fuselage a bit. I haven't made a platform at the bottom of the fuselage to hold Velcro for the battery yet; I might just put the Velcro in right on the bottom of the fuselage and leave it at that. There's plenty of room for motor and ESC left and it all seems to balance just right at this point.

The servos are glued to each other and the rear one is about 3/16" higher than the forward one. The push rod connector for the rear servo is bent to put the push rod back down in line with the boom. Everything is real tight but moves smoothly without binding.

The idea of using differential elevator is interesting. I'll keep it in mind down the road after I've got some flight time on the plane.

Ron
