That about does it for the fuselage, except for cutting some cooling holes for the front motor, and figuring out where the LiPo goes. I am using the current battery hatch for my receiver battery since it fits perfectly in there. I was also able to put a switch right next to it.

My receiver setup:
Both ESCs go to the throttle channel via a Y-harness.
The steering servo goes to the rudder channel via a Y-harness.
The elevator and aileron channels have extension wires coming out of them.

Both ESCs are connected to a Y-harness so I can use one LiPo.
My LiPo can discharge at 42 amps; I expect to pull 15 amps max from each motor.
