I noticed you have the propeller fitted backwards at the moment. You’ll need to fit it with the front face ( with the writing on it) facing the front.
I have not done anything to it, but this is just quick Peak for you guys. I fly models for 7years and going to check everything before I take it to the field.

Do you think the Ailerons are big enough ?

560grams without covering and battery.

Update:

I tried to fly the Shinden today but ran into a couple of problems; the battery couldn't deliver the power (it's an old one), after a few runs the landing gear bend like crazy (see pictures) and the biggest problem is the lack of a steerable nosewheel.

Any idea of how to squeeze a steerable nosewheel into the tight nose?

Wait, I got your question wrong. I couldn't even take off because of the non-steerable nosewheel.

I am also not brave enough to hand launch it.

I would like to utilize the landing gear for landing and takeoff because it's already there.

Update:
Guys I need your help, despite searching the web I couldn't find a solution for a steerable nosegear, the internal space is soo small.
