Looks great

Nice! Is that a 620 or a swift with a stretched tail to fit the 50 size?

Looks great

Hello,
It's a swift with a 620 conversion kit, it includes boom tail case, belt and pulley. It flies much better with this kit, much more estable.
The fuselage is a 50 size.

Aeropoxy Glue gun

Aeropoxy Glue gun comes with two tips as in the attachec pictures one white and loolks like a larger mixing tip and a smaller green on I think for smaller valume.

Please correct me if Im wrong

Question one I use a tip can I leave it on the gun and reuse it again or will the glue harden?

I just bought that mount myself but haven't installed it yet (stretched Swift 16 in the 50 size Funkey Airwolf). What made you decide to mount it with wood to the bottom of the fuselage? Is that balsa or ply?

mounting

I was trying to build formers and so I was going with internal rails

The platform mounting holes do not line up exactly with the landing gear mounting holes

The wood is just a soft wood for building purposes, but I think I will us fur for the final mounting

Hello Again,
I used wooden rails on the bottom of the scale mount. It work out good for me,
stable and solid. The problem with the swift is the frame its too shallow. But you can make it work. I also opt for a seal front instead of magnet like the beginning.
After the crash on the maiden I change my mind to make everything rock solid.
I can take some pics if you need it.
