sure here you go there are 2 diff methods for the rudder. you can run the rod outside the fuse to the bottom ofthe rudder or you can run the rod internal and out the back of the fuse with a small bend in the rod it works great too.

well I have had successful flights on both the 30" and now the 20"ws. the 20"ws has way to much power and the highkv motor makes it to fast and not slow and floaty like I wanted so I am going to put the eflite 180 in to see if it tones it down a bit. other than that they fly great inverted also. I am very very happy with this design. the next build will come with improved plans and a cool paint job. any ideas for a paint scheme are welcome.
i was thinking the orange and black sbach version
or like my avatar

Did you say up or down?

I am partial to the blue red and white but I have to admit the black and orange colour scheme looks sharp! I am yet undecided on mine

Congrats on the successful flights. I am pleased to here about the nice inverts.

Well i maidened mine last night, it flew great but it was to windy and well a tree caught it. i finally got it down with only the rudder popping off. so went back out this morning, still to windy, but still threw it up there and it was great handled the wind much better than i thought.

very nice I am glad it went well and I'm also happy to hear it handles good in the wind.
It would be awesome if you could post your specs (motor,prop,esc,servos AUW) and some pics if you have any. And any info you have on servo placement and battery placement. I want to clean up the fuse a bit and any input you can give would be great

well the electronics i took out of my hobby king epo hawk that i destroyed. (heres a link to it) https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=11339
and the servos are just some 5g things that i had and a 2 cell 500 mah, prop was the one i was using on the hawk, its 8 in thats all i know about it. and i have no way to get the auw =/
ill try to get some pics up tomrow, but to warn you it aint perdy, there were many mishapes when building it so most likely it will be crashed and i will just build a better one.

This thing looks great! I am planning on doing a similar type plane with a box fuse, just about 40" and an Extra 300.

hehe, its good that you warned people about the first vid.

Nice plane,just scaled it up 190% for a 38" wing span.
I cannot find any mention of the c/g location on the plans so could you give me a starting point.

Thanks

i usually start about 30% from the leading edge. that should be fine. I did calculate the cg on the 30"ws and it was almost dead on 30% so thats what I have used. if you find the larger wing span has a diff cg please let me know.

his is the calculator i used
http://adamone.rchomepage.com/cg_calc.htm

i just ran the specs on the 20"ws and CG is aprox 1.6" from leading edge which is also aprox 30% from leading edge.

Thanks for the C/G starting point,I have also printed the plans for a 35" ws so not sure which one to build yet,the 35" will suit my available gear better but I do like bigger planes.
