In your center fuse picture, I notice that you haven't used a center spar, or any type of backbone for longitudinal support. Is there something we're not seeing?

In this picture your #3 engine nacelle seems to have a positive a.o.a. in relationship to the top line of the fuse.

Subbed and anxious to see the completed AC. Great stuff.

#2 (fuselage / tail engine) has a designed positive AOA to account for the thrust line issue requirement due to it's location on the airframe.

Eddie like you I'm a HUGE fan of the old United "stripe" livery!

Thanks Sergey, I did see this and will give it a shot . i tried fabric-tac but it ate up the foam so i returned it bummer Michael's doesnt carry foam-tac.

Hello, nope, I do not have any rod/spar running down the fuse. its very stiff as is.



Ethan, Eddie and Chris everybody thank you. I will be at it some more in a couple of days. I will try to work on the nose retract.

Fabric Tac is not the same. Foam Tac is much better. You can get it from BP Hobbies e.g. Or there is a guy on Long Island that sells them.
More information (also on their monthly contest) is in this thread

Modern radios make the choice of a pull/pull mechanism a no brainer. No more worries about manually syncing the rudder to the steering. You'll like it even better in practice once you see how easy it is to trim up.

Great stuff, really enjoying this build.
Cheers and H.N.Y.
