This is from Greg Englands post #92 with the one he built

This will get weight out of the tail and enable the
use of a smaller flight pack which at this stage is a 2200mah 3S. AUW is 1850 grams (with batt) so I am very impressed, a
real floater well done.

I over came the tape not sticking ( which I think is due the waxiness in the resin when hard) by using Profilm Clear ironed on each side of the panel joins. I use this for the hinging of the flaps & ailerons as well. The tape will stick to this.

Mine was a spray paint finish. As result the paint built up in particles that were meant the surfave was not actually smooth. Tape would not stick as it was like taping onto sandpaper.
A quick sand smoothed it off and tape stuck perfectly.

These are my weights
Tips: 331, 298
Center wing: 703
Tailplane: 59
Fuse with battery: 876 (battery 1600 x 3) (60 gram ballast)

Can anyone supply their CG. I am starting a 100 from LE edge and working back.

Looking at the weights I am not sure I can do much about it. I am going to use in competition so it has to be strong. Its no good being light and failing.

I am looking forward to its maiden.

I will try smoothing the paint off. I have some 1200 wet and dry.
