Looks very nice. The pilot adds quite a bit as well. Faster than the kadet? I assume you're joking; with the larger engine in it it should haul.

Do you have two servos on the aileron? Did you consider trying to add some kind of rudder control? I'm thinking of resurrecting mine (took the guts for other projects) They look cool and go really fast. What is your weight with the larger engine (ready to fly)?

yes i was kidding on the kadet....

ailerons in the wings would be a great mod......as far as rudder i hardly use the rudder when flying....

i had a thought about some wheels...but i didnt want any drag slowing it down....retracts would add a little weight...hmm...

the cg was off because of the engine change...the rx battery is all the way back...now its just about right....i'm not sure on the weight as i dont have a scale...

....after i can get mine in the air and banged up a little i will probably make some changes

...drop me a pm or a link when you get yours going....
