Escapade .61

Just got this plane yesterday. Looks absolutely great. Will be busy building the plane this week. Details about the build later.
This plane calls for a RimFire 50-55, I purchased a Leopard Motor 50-55 650kv for $50. However the motor box is set up for the RImFire. I popped out the wing nuts. Filled the hole with a wood dowel and wood putty and repositioned the wing nuts to fit the Leopard Motor.
Finally got this together, it was easy enough. Just concerned about the CG. It’s 4 inches from leading edge. When I put in the battery it’s slightly back from that. I will try to make adjustments where I can. Don’t want to add weights
This is a BIG plane. I will most likely have one of the more experienced pilots take her up first.
It has been a long time since I got to this plane but finally put it together. It’s a big plane and flies GREAT
