Forecast Sunday, high of 55 with < 10 mph wind. Not that bad, but I guess I'll see when Sunday gets here.

I have a question.
I have a seagull launch T blade. The stuff in the instructions is a classic blade.
Should I use the seagull blade? Does the tip need reinforcement for the T blade?
Steve i am not sure that i will make it tomorrow.

I have an urge to assemble the fuse without the plywood servo tray. So I could use a slightly larger battery. I'd use a cf rod to hold the lid on.

Is the servo tray needed to reinforce the nose, or for convenience in mounting the servos, or both?

Gary - The hatch cover is too flat for a CF rod to hold it in place. As for the servo tray, I couldn't get the tray through the hatch opening on my Helios 2X, same fuselage, so I used servo rails. Even after lawn darting this DLG several times, there aren't any signs of failure around the hatch opening. I did break the boom a few inches forward of the stab pylon.

The tray also helps it balance at proper cg.
