Coyote / Ridge Runt

I always had a soft spot for the Ridge Runt, itís a cute plane. And now a used Coyote ended up on my building board!

There was a 380 brush motor installed , I removed it and embarked on making a new nose cone and fitting a canopy from a Graupner Terry.

Before starting the finish work I threw it a few times and it flew well. To balance CG I had to put a 1200 NiMH pack up front!

The remedy is on - moving the elevator servo forward of the CG to avoid heavy ballasting and also cutting every gram off the tail, currently removed 5-6 grams in total.

I hope it will be fun on the slopes but my expectations are not high with the flat bottom wind profile.
