Place the two tallest mounts on with the short one up front.
Use a fine toothed xacto saw to cut the fiber to fit into a 5/8 inch long balsa box.
1/16 balsa shims were needed to widen the box to fit the carbon tube.
sand the gloss from the CF tube and mount into the box with canopy glue. I used water proof glue from Michael's Stores. Add top cover.
A hole was drilled to accept the wire and a slot cut to hold the LG vertical
If the lG fits snug, you will need no glue. I used canopy glue to add a neat nose block after the canard was mounted.

Make sure the front and rear are strong to take the force of an arc.
Velcro does the trick
Plug in the battery and slide forwawd
Just add two socket screws
Building the top center of the canard is tedious. Also from the cockpit rearwards.
Note the bamboo skewer used as a fuse strengthening device.
A nickel was taped close to the nose to balance it.
This is an odd little plane I designed last weekend - I dubbed it the "Geomefly". This is version 1 - version 2 has the wing placed further "up" in the fuselage.
Another view of the GeomeFly.

Yep its ful size Goldwing on floats
Here is the 3 view I used to design the model
I wasnt sure how it was going to fly so I maidened it without the markings.

right after getting everything installed, all except the motor I got for it.
the triblade is on a Mega 16/15/3 that isn't the motor I got for this plane and yes this is the E version 35oz.
The Triblade is on a Mega Motor, but I got an outrunner for it. AXI2026-950 is what is on it now.
Original Design #2
Canard. The same plan was used with 3" sweep back added
The angles caused a much harder build
A Tru Turn spinner was the basis for a change
Less work here and more streamlined.
The windshield was moved forward. More work.
