I only land in long grass now. The battery area also needed a simple mod as it didn't fit any of my 3S packs.

Good luck with yours.

Post some pics here when you have finished.
Thanks for the info. It's good to know this stuff BEFORE you start building. Just for clarification on the balsa reinforcement, are you also recommending reinforcement of the LE and TE of the wing itself, or where the LE and TE of the wing joins the fuselage.
