Guillows dc3 with flair

first build thread heck first build in years!! Hahaha. Thought this have gone a little quicker but this has turned to be more of a scratch build since this model is not meant to fly BUT SHE WILL!!! Taken a little from here and there from other threads. Main thing I've had in mind with this build is CG, CG, CG, CG !!!!!!! trying to keep this this light in the tail more updated to come enjoy

Very cool subject!

I think you'll have more success in keeping the aft end light if you skip the sheeting though (especially on the tail surfaces)

I love seeing people take old Guillows and Comet kits and bringing them back as electrics!

Great 1st RCG post Sir!

So far so good that battery up front really helps. I must say it really is a beautiful kit can't wait for my props and the last odd bits to come in
