I have strengthened the motor mount and the electrics have been fitted to the plane. I have been surprised how far forward these parts have had to be fitted in order to meet the CoG at 55-60mm. The throws have been checked and servo covers fitted so in principle she's ready to fly, though I haven't run the motor at full speed. More details of the build are shown in my blog.
