Weasel EVO nose tape

I sent a weasel to a friend in alaska and I wanted him to be able to enjoy slope right away , basically plug and fly no trim needed just rates. Here are some picts of the build I did. this weasel weighed 12.6 Oz. I ended up adding only 15 cents (a dime and a nickle to balance) I covered it with white colored packing tape on top and blue on bottom. I test flew it and and adjusted the control linkages till there was no need to trim Tx. He has not flow it yet but I know he will really dig slope and put down them noisy whirlygig planes.

Well I was in a hurry when I put my Weasel together and didn't take your advise regarding the nose. After letting someone with absolutely no experience try flying, the Weasel came home looking like this.



After gluing the nose back on I decided that I should probably look this thread up. The nose feels much stronger now.
