FX707 EPP Foam FF glider ( 1.2 meter )

This be the largest of the EPP foam gliders I could find on Ebay .
1.2 Meter Span
166.7 grams ( RTF )
The steel BB weigh in at 44 grams together ( 22g each )
So I guess that gives us about 44 grams of RC stuff to put in the glider .. ( ? )

The fit of the wing and elevator are excellent .
There are carbon rods in the wing - but I did feel a little bit of movement - so maybe glued in a little ? Maybe add some foam safe cyno ...
The 707 was reasonably straight , hopefully RC just fine .

Plan = 9g or 6g servos ? , will depend on how much weight is needed for CG
At the moment CG looks to be at 50% of the chord .
I dont have space at home to test 1.2 meters . + the wind is up today .
This will be a rudder elevator job ..
And I will try and move everything as far forward as possible to avoid adding weight .
This may have to be 2s to get the weight from the battery for CG .

The big foam bird is here . And it is rather nice I have to say .
