Radio, too

We need to control the model so I like to see that the radio will fit properly. I believe the pull-pull stab is going by the wayside... I want to be able to ballast this one. The wing bolt will go all the way through to the bottom tray, and sheet lead will be cut and balanced for this glider's CG. It'll have a hole that the bolt will pass through to hold it in place, so as not to shift the CG in flight. Several sheets will allow for a more flexible ballast system. Comment on the other Yardbird thread about this please... I've never paid that much attention to ballast, even though I live where the wind blows...
