Please Double Check These Settings Before Fly

1.Center of gravity :
The gravity center should be located 2.36 inches behind the front edge of the main wings. Secure your lipo battery in the right position to ensure the correct gravity center position.

2. Rudder setting :
The V-tail is set like Rudder, not Aileron, Please make sure you understand the setting illustrated below.

3. Throttle:
The large wing design of this Eagle have excellent aerodynamic property and only require very low speed for taking off. For Hand lunch, only need around 50%~60% of your motor power. After reaching desired altitude, the cruising speed only require 30% motor power. These suggestion is base on the recommended part.

Please enjoy and share with us
on your creativities on the painting
and videos on the maneuverings.

D'oh!

I think this step needs clarifying:

"Step 8: Glue to beak part of the side fuselage to the bended bottom fuselage."

Change that to:

"Step 8: Glue the beak part of the side fuselage to the bent bottom fuselage. Make sure the slot for the motor mount is on the inside."

I know it shows it in the photo, but I didn't notice the slots so I built my fuselage inside out! Fortunately, I'm building a twin motor Eagle so I won't need to fit the motor mount.

Step 7 shows glue being applied to the right hand fuselage side (notice the slot), but step 8 shows the left side being fitted. I'm going to use that as my excuse if anyone points out my mistake

You're welcome. Feel free to delete my posts now you've updated step 8. I don't want to clutter up your manual thread.

Question regarding 50cm CF rods.
From what I understand they do not have to go through entire length of the wing , so they go only 25 cm into each wing, correct?
Any reason I could not use the main spar (100cm) with entire length of the wing?
The back one is only to align the wings so could be left at 50cm.
Any input will be appreciated.

Using full length spars has been done (somewhere in the main EPP Eagle thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=701120) though I've found the stock ones are enough because the wing material is very stiff.

This seems to be a calm weather plane so there's no real need for full length spars, IMHO. There'd be no harm in adding them though (or one long and one short), apart from the additional weight and expense.
