Got a little work done this week. I did some sanding and filling, and got the wings covered. The Monokote added 1 1/2 oz per wing (3 oz total). The weight is adding up. John

Wings look great. Silver stripe is a nice touch.

I finished up the SSE today. I thought the cg would end up nose heavy, but after it was covered it ended up balancing 3/8" back from the spar with the 2200 mah 4s battery, so I changed to the 3600 mah 4s and upped the prop to a 12-6 APC E. The change brought the weight up to 5 lb 1/2 oz (80 1/2 oz). I put a Eagle Tree Guardian in because these old eyes, old shaky hands, and slower reflexes sometimes need a little help (not the flyer I once was). John

How is the prop clearance with original gear?
I was planning on 14"- might have to go with 12" and see how many amps I get

The 12 inch worked really well for me. Plenty of ground clearance with Dave Brown 3.5 inch wheels. I just sold mine a couple of weeks ago to make room for a new project. John
