Thanks Guys,
Yeah I'm pretty happy with the Hurricane needs a little cg work but even being a little tail heavy it was still very well behaved. David be a while before I start the next build as home reno's are going on so cant even get into my workshop cause there's stuff every where .

The home reno is your next build...going to have a build thread??

It's good to know it was manageable with it still being tail heavy...sometimes, especially with powered planes, a tail heavy maiden can be the first and last flight.

Good luck with the home renovations... I went looking at your threads and you had started one for the Boomerang. So, if that's not going to be your next build, drop a note in there so I can go find that build. I like following your builds, I learn a thing or three (or more) every time.

Hope the home renovations are as stress free as possible. I know how stressful they can be sometimes.

It will probably be the build thread for the Boomerang but as far as its gone is a drawing so far I will do another thread for it ,I'm still working out a plan of attack ,but trying to get this Granny flat built and my work shop extended is really taking up precious build time.Still should be worth it in the end.
