Thanks.
I think my ducts are a little small in area. I found some formula's on square to round duct equivalency. Looks like a square inlet/exhaust needs much more area than a circle, for the same flow. I'll see how that works out in real life. Should have found the formula's before I cut them.

Thanks.
I fiberglassed the bottom of the wing. I'm using Elmers white glue, water, and microballons to secure the fiberglass (a squirt of each, so about equal amounts of each by volume, maybe a little less for the microballons). My scale shows its now 19.7 grams. Cost me 1.5 grams. I plan to glass the rest of the bottom after the electronics are installed.

Looks like the electronics might fit, without to much hastle.
In the second photo the receiver is sitting about where the CG is easy to get. I can move the lipo for a more forward CG. To move it aft would be more difficult. From the glide test the fuselage makes about as much lift as the wings. So I think I'll be close to a flyable CG, with the electronics close to where placed in the first picture.

Thanks again.
I have had a bunch of important projects come up, so hope I can get a little time in on this project. Might go a little slow.

I have a Hyperion 2 cell, 500mah. It is the one in the picture. I would use a lighter one, if I can find one up to the task.
