On another note i got my 4330 in the mail today. What's the easiest way to move the blind nuts to match up with the X-mount?

Gremlin l have the 5320 on mine and the hv120 with the Bec pro on the side of the motor box and my batts sit up further than yours too. Mine is dead neutral in flight too. Wonder why yours is so different.
Wait where do you have your rudder servo? Mine is in the tail

wow
I'm sure that's the prettiest option.

I just popped my blind nuts out with my screw and driver then used a hobby knife to remove the circle. Drilled new holes on the center lines and reinstalled the circles and blindnuts

I squirt a bit of debonder around the small plywood donut.
Take a soldering iron that is nice and hot and stick the iron in from the front, the heat loosens the glue and the blind nut will pop right out. Or (I usually do this) skip the soldering iron and start working a small screwdriver in between the plywood donut and the firewall. It will usually pop out without much work. If the debonder has done it's work they will even come off clean.

Not to change the subject... but I am on a prop hunt. What are you guys running 19x10 and 20x8 using? Eventually would like to get to Carbon Fiber but may start with wood.

Looking forward to some video with the new slick, Hone1er

I'm running a pull-pull rudder setup so the servo is up front, that's probably the difference. In reading back thru the thread I saw a lot of guys running 8s with pull-pull have their packs right on the wing tube so I'm pretty happy with where they sit. I'm still dialing the plane in so there may be a little adjustment to get the sweet spot. The 71 is so forgiving it doesn't hurt if the CG is off a bit.

Try replace the donuts as the prongs from the blind nuts can go all the way through the firewall if no donuts in place.

Sorry about the donuts getting messed up Joe....

So....for those times when I need to remove blind nuts that are glued in...here is how I do it....

Screw a bolt into the blind nut and then heat the bolt with a soldering iron or soldering gun, then tap the bolt with a mallet to break the blind nut loose.

If there are donuts, then once the blind nuts are out, you can use Golden West Super Solvent to remove the donuts....

Lastly...you can cut some new spacers from plywood, glue them on the back, then when you drill you new holes, just drill through them. To keep the plywood from splintering, hold a wooden block up against the back of the plywood...
