Did not know what those TFG's were for, thanks for the clear up. Though an F3P model does respond quite sharply with the rudder anyways. I guess anything to get it tracking THAT much straighter is a good thing.
I knew it was to the gear side because of how tall your fuse is over the wing. Which is where your plane's CG likely is close to because of motor placement and such.
Generally what we do is put the thrust line, elevator, and main wing around the center of the fuse for less coupling.

yah i tend to design planes to look good first and then make the neceserry changes to make it fly good.. it all trial and Error + if this plane is sucsessful i will offer larger versions and EPP versions too!

Balsa is a whole new ball park. At least you have access to a CNC machine.

I might be forgetting something, but is this a Freestyle or Pattern plane?

Thanks,

The building has begun
I have put together the top half of the banshee, i have yet to add the electronics and the control surfaces aswell as the lower fuse, but heres the pictures off the progress

Wing, still needs carbon added to LE's of wing and TE of wing were ailerons will be.
Now i will ad the CF, servo's, lower fuse half, control surfaces, landing gear and power system all in one night ... i am attempting to get all of this done in one night for flying off of the snow tommorw! Since i will be attempting my f35 remaiden also
