    That's 8 inch back from where the wings stop on the fuse right?

    So I guess you need to keep your packs quite far back in the fuse to balance? Cos it's a big fuselage. This looks like a great platform for downward facing cameras, pretty sure this will be a hit with the mapping crowd.

    Yes 8 is good , I have gone all the way back to 8.5, but she starts to get touchy it will, yes there is a huge adjustment length and more room than you need for just fpv. So pick your poison!

    Go for it! I can't find a damn thing wrong with this aircraft. In fact, if it flies like my other Ritewing wings, I may give up everything else...
