I will make these changes so rapidly that I can report back to you before you have completed the new plane as payment for the kindness of you giving me your old Bixler. How about that!

I just might take you up on that offer and send you my SS as is maybe minus the motor.

Eagle, why do I want to say Eugene, I will gladly call the closest shipping store to you and make arrangements. Walk-in throw all the parts on the desk and give them the pre-paid shipping number I will provide for you.

I will install a Turnagy 2826/6 2200 KV motor on it with a 6 x 4 master air screw three blade prop on it as I did before it flew great.

I won't do all the crash protection modifications because the plane survives because of its flexibility not its strength. If it hits the ground I want the battery split the nose and eject itself. I want the wings break loose and slide down the carbon rods.

Looked at mine, it is slightly to the left , looking from the front.
Yours maybe a little too much.
However, fly it and see how it tracks with all trims , especially rudder and aileron neutral. If you need lots of rudder and aileron to fly STRAIGHT then maybe it is offset too much.
The offset is there because of the torque of the motor which tries to turn your plane left.
