as for the servo tray.in the arttech pitts its almost directly below the seat/cockpit.i put it on tracks on each side of fuse.i like to pin and spot glue it untill i get a good CG.then i final glue.this makes it so you will not have to add weight

I don't know anything about Wal-Mart foamboard - it seems to me that, given the amount of work going into this plane, it would be worthwhile to use EPP and carbon fiber instead of budget materials. Especially with this being an aerobatic plane. I've got two 30" wingspan 3D planes, one weighs 270 grams and the other weighs 200. The 270 gram plane is a total dog by comparison.

it was quite abit of work the first time,but now on V3 version its a piece of cake.all together i think this plane would be classified as a park flyer rather than a 3d bipe,but it is much lighter than the arttech pitts that i got the shapes and spec's from.flys almost the same.the arttech pitts is somewhat heavier thow

This looks awesome. Any update on the plan progress. I am really keen to get into this. Might I ask if these plans would work with 6mm Depron foam. Foam board here in Australia is not as light as the options available in the US and MUCH more expensive. I get 6mm Depron in various densities at reasonable prices.

Eager to get into this little beauty...
