anyone sloped the SR 22 from electrifly yet?

I picked up a slightly used/crashed once and repaired sr 22 from my LHS friend and owner.I was gonna stick a motor in it, but decided to see if it could slope... Its about ready and just waiting for the wind..it of course it has the built up wing and I figured I'd try it with the existing airfoil then cut some cores. if it flies with the airfoil then it would be easier to match cores to the saddle area..especially since it has a two piece wing set-up.. the weight I ended up with is 40 oz which kinda surprised me. to get the cg , i ended up putting two standard servos forward ,a 1400 3s lipo, speed control to knock down the volts, two servos in wing,..I also extended the rudder about 1 1/2 inch for better landing control.added spars on the tube for the carbon spar..it got pretty strong after that and also a spar across the T.E..worked well ..I alsolaid two layers of fg cloth from wing spar forward to the nose..slope style.. pics along shortly......

The easy way to match the cores to a new foil is to maintain the roots section but change the tip section so the airfoil will transition to a more suitable slope foil done it before FWIW
