Really nice work. I wouldn't have thought to stagger the servos vertically as you did, but it's a neat way of doing things.

Thanks Guys!!!
This plane has a lot of spirit!! well the servo mount... donīt know, the fuselage shape give me an idea, and the rudder will be controlled by a loop, so i think the only way is to put the servo on center....

The covering is on they way, but need more white tissue, until monday iīm hand-tied. I was planing to paint the trim with cellulose lacquer, but i will work as usual, red tissue( donīt like to much, but the spinner i get is red) and black lettering.

i will share some pics today at night.

Looking really great Rodrigo, love the simple white/red scheme, looks so clean and crisp. For closed loop control runs I normally use nylon coated fishing trace wire of 10-15 pound breaking strain, except on very small models where I might use nylon monofilament fishing line.

As always, a really nice airplane. I'd love to have your skills! Do you ever mess up?

Hi Guys!!
iīve been looking for the meaning of Mamselle, but get no answer, google translate does not know the word.... is something like Madame? I ask because i will like to find a good image to use on wing.
99.5% done.....
Just missing the lettering on wing and add like 15 grams of weight on nose....(thinking to get the CG as per plan).
At this stage, ready to fly (including lipo) 320 grams or 15.6 oz. BUT need some nose weight, iīm thinking to remove the TX case (save 6g) and if i can get, change the piano wire for carbon fiber rod for elevator pushrod.
Making the loops for rudder was interesting as i never tried before, i did not get the wire George told me, but i get some mono filament fishing wire (10lb.) and was fixed with some aluminum tube compressed and a mini-drop of thin CA.
Here the pics...
