I'm glad that you have subscribed to the build thread, Carlos. Welcome to RC Groups!

I do have a questions about the plane, especially the ballast system.

1. What is the furthest forward, and furthest aft CG that has been used on your Toba design?

2. Do you have a method of adding ballast to the wing slots and wing joiner, to keep the CG in the right place?

3. Which style of tow hook have you used, to allow it to fit with the ballast tube in the fuse?
No tow hook came in the kit I recieved, I think they may have just forgotten to include it.

4. Do you recommend a bulkhead from foam with bearings installed mid-boom for the push rods that the kit comes with?
4a. Can I save weight in the tail by using a "snake" system instead, with @ 1.4mm CF inner rods?

Any help appreciated, sir!

Adicted to these things...
Hi Moro,
It is nice to hear from the designer of the plane
Can you let me know your philosophy for the design or choice of the airfoil? Was it chosen for any particular strengths and do you know how it compares to other planes (either in theory or practice)?.
Thanks
Marcus

Ian-

I really doubt that a 5 cell Sub-C pack will fit in the nose, its actually pretty narrow and slim.
Probably a 5 cell pack of 2/3A cells will, in the normal configuration;
IIII- or III-- and, I think probably a Hyperion LiFe 1450 as well.

I will check for you today a bit later and report back so you can buy gear.

I'm actually off to Soaring USA today to do the same.

Kyle! send me some servos so I can build this thing!

Ian-

Here are the pics I promised you..... Looks like a 1/2 Sub-C pack would fit, if configured like this: ll--

I only had a "flat pack" laying around of the 1/2 Sub-C's. Best fit is the 2/3A linke this: lll-

The LiFe Hyperion 1450 pack needs to be back a bit from the nose. Check the pics.

Bob says he's working on the SUSA web site right now, Walter.

You can call Annette or Gary for pricing and availability.
