Maiden was a success, going to need quite a bit of tweaking to get cg and KE all set up, but this thing flys great, spins like mad and lands like a kitten. Boring maiden Video uploading

Congrats 3DHS! I can't imagine how much time and effort went into getting this model from drawing board to everyone's grimy little thumbs. Must be very satisfying.

Looks like you did a little tail gear modification.

How far did you overlap the fairing on the gear? And did you glue all the way up the fuse?

I like to use Zap-A-Dap-a-goo for things like this, as it is just a little bit flexible, and it has a very tenacious grip!!

I overlapped mine all the way to the edge, gave more glueing surface.

+1 but I used tape instead of glue, not very pretty, but the fairing didn't sit flush with the fuse at the trailing edge so I thought tape would be easier
