Fuselage walkthrough

Taking a look at the fuse, I see a lot of well-thought-out stuff.

First off, it just looks good... But here are some other nice points:

-Spiffy giant-scale-style motor box, with a doubled firewall.

-Preinstalled handy-dandy hatch latch

-Extended tabs for cowl mounting

-Lots of room to slide that battery pack forward - in fact, you can go all the way to the firewall!

-Option of mounting rudder servo in the tail or up front for pull-pull. I'll build the plane complete except for the rudder linkage first, check balance, and then decide where to put it. But I have a feeling it's going to be a pull-pull setup.

-Lots of formers. I think one of Ben's design rules must be "If you think you have too many formers, add two more." This is a good thing. Formers=torsional stiffness.
