Airborn 1600 build Fuselage start, cutting out parts

Finally got my saw and a start on the fuselages.
I have been making some of the cut pieces with exact angles and wing saddles
for the fuselages. A lot easier now that I have a small Dremel 4" saw.
The one picture is how I cut out the wing saddle so that the wing sits at
1.25 Degrees positive angle of attack, the stock Airborn is set at about 5 deg
which is way too much for RC flying and good thermaling characteristics.
I have proven this angle after now building 31 Airborns over the last 4 years.
I also have the Horizontal stab so that I can change it's angle if needed but
with settling on the 1.25 deg on the wing I haven't needed to trim the H Stab.
