hi,

yes there is, my fuselage is build up that way (wider then high), if i would have the canopy on top or bottem the strenght would be gone or to small canopy to have acces thru.

it also makes it possible to slide a big bar of lead in piece in ,

i think in the first post are drawings of the ballast arrangement .

hi jonas,

cam: rino
milling software : usbscnc v3

yesterday (actually this morning) i put the first zone v2 wing in the mould , with cf d-box , no rds yet.

i needed more epoxy then expected so i'm a bit nervous about the weight , but it's hard to predict cause much goes into the paper to dip it dry.

we'll see tomorow...

new set of tail's


hi,

i pulled my new tail set today but here a little heavy , 15gr/set that should be reduced to 12-13 gr.

but they match my new zone v2 wing!

15g works even better. With digitals, 400mA lipo and regulator I don't need more then 5-10g of nose weight and 13g-15g tails is so much more durable. All that in 265g-275g AUW.
