Let me come with a small advice,In the aft fuse where the elevator servos are to be installed ,the fuse is very thin and a bit flexy ,i had some flutter on the first flight and traced it to the flexing elev servos.I stiffened it with a carbon mat and the problem dissapeared.What to you plan for covering the wings?
The leading edge is made of very light balsa and i suggest
you saturate it with cyano to harden it.I got some dents in them
and had to repair it,but then again i landed in hard snow.
otherwise its perfect,you will enjoy it very much .what will power it?

Terje: thanks for the advice!
i planned on glassing the wing/stab/fin. with the built in hinges, i'm not sure about how to do this on the upper surfaces.
