Nice looking model Benny, but I would have thought a small former with balsa or spruce noseblock would have made the nose build easier and stronger (though of course you can't then get noseweight as far forward I suppose).

Yes Matty, I know, but I had designed the possibility mounting a brushless motor also. All parts are foresseen allready, I just need a extended axes and a ballbearing, with a hub that can be removed, so you can make your choice quickly if you are on the slope or on the field. Mine to start is a slopeversion only and also prototype.
