The picture of the AVA parts shows a 12" brown tube. What is the brown tube used for? (I have an early AVA which did not come with a brown tube. I have not had time to assembly my AVA yet so your comments on the building process will be of great interest). Thanks.

Thanx CHARLIE BRITT 7, but I don't think I will be buy one in a hurry. I have a Quant, that I'm yet to build. I still need the money to buy the brushless motor and speed controller. I must say that the AVA is a great looking glider though.

Hey this is my 69th post

more pics

today i did the cut out for the servos and batt.
a word of caution, move the servos about another inch foward, this will give you better access to the ballasts tube.
now i will have to cut my weights to 1.5 inches to get them in the tube.
