Looks like the former isn't going to be available, and what was left of mine is long gone. I have seen photos showing that the former was included with some kits.

Does anybody have a 4th former by chance that they didn't use? I would love to buy it, or even have a scan of it. Please!!!!

Thanks guys!

I need this one:
edit: It's the former at the wing tube. Been a while since i worked on it, and I thought it was at the rudder servo tray.

Ryan_m may have the one that I'm looking for (thanks Ryan! ), but it'll be a few days before he can check. Still looking, and thanks for the help everyone!

My higher-C nano-tech packs were lighter than the older BLUE turnigy packs of lower C-rating.

I'm Not sure that higher-C = heavier....in all cases.

I think the key word here is "older".

Lipo's seem to get more powerful (higher C) and lighter each year.

I need this one:
Here is a scan of my lower half that I sort of copied. Might get you close enough or a place to start. Where is that picture from? My MB kit didn't have the 4th.

Minus having a CG machine or someting similar how do you guys guesstimate your CG on a plane this size? After that first few flight then you pretty much just know but I dont want to guess to much with an investment like this!
