I don't know what Harris would say if I show him this.
But I know he'll give one of his trademark stares!
If you've ever talked to Harris, you know which stare I'm talking about!

Joe,

If you are going to poke the wild animals here at least show us the internals.

Better yet would be not poking the animals by putting this in the Electric Sailplanes forum. Just sayin'.

Here, elecrif***ing a Harris Nelson design is likely considered heresy by the majority.

Fuselage photo

HI Guys,
Man I did not mean to insult you slope flyers! Here's a look at the inside of the Fuselage, servos are mounted way back to make room up front. Scoop up front to bring in air! It will not be flown at any of your sites!

Joe.....What the heck man...you can't post a picture like that and not give details

1. How the did you install those servos.

2. Where did you source the tail installation method.

Interesting. Not something I'd do but I'd like to see video of it flying.

Second on the "how did you do the tail". I've always wanted a pitcheron with removable tails for a travel ready plane.

It's not that most folks here do not appreciate a new spin on an electric, Joe. It's like desecrating something sacred, doing that to a Harris Nelson design.
