That's a much better idea mate! Well done. Must be good having all your bits cut out and ready to go, For me that is at least 50% of the build time...

More build .. I had to put the CF spar on the underside of the wing as I forgot to set it in before I glued all the ribs in place .. silly me .. senior moment, I think

Then another "senior moment" .. forgot to put the elevator servo in the boom and run the cable through to the front .. bugger
