Thanks for the heads up KM. Looks like I'll have to pick up some stick on lead weights on my next visit to the auto parts store. Nobody likes to add weight, but if I have to I will. I will still end up with a lighter plane than going with a larger motor since I can mount the weight in the forward part of the cowl. Should require slightly less weight since that's somewhat ahead of the motor (trying to stay positive
). Could always move the rudder servo to the battery tray!
Either way it takes a couple of extra weeks to get my airframes up to Canada. You guys will have it all figured out by then I'm sure.
