    Very tidy build mate good stuff. Did you hit CG with that straight up or add lead? All up weight? Overall she loops sweet as. Can't wait to get one.

    Brilliant photos Dale thanks. A few questions if you don't mind?

    Did you spackle painting? or just sand?

    it seems you cut a little shelf for the plastic Base and hatches and then glued them in- is this correct?

    Which size battery does she balance with?

    The extra fins that you fit on the wings- did you cut the lam off and dig a channel in the foam where the fins insert? Or does glue them directly onto the lam?

    Many thanks I will be making a start on this after Christmas

    Haven't really used mine much. Were they easy to puff or did you abuse them?

    I started adding comments to the photos today. A lot of it is self explanatory, but if you don't understand something, hit me up and will get you an answer.

    Just sand.

    Correct, super easy to do

    Which size battery does she balance with?
    You have a lot of options here. 4S 2100 needs an HD cam or lead to make it CG. I am sure something around 4S 2600 - 3300 would be perfect.

    The extra fins that you fit on the wings- did you cut the lam off and dig a channel in the foam where the fins insert? Or does glue them directly onto the lam?
    I poked holes in the lam where the fins go. Then stuck them down with hot glue. Then around the outside edges with Welders. MAKE sure they are on straight top and bottom before Welders.

    Very easy to hit CG. AUW with my battery and HD cam is 38oz.

    HS82 MG may be a little overkill however they fit the servo hole perfectly and I want to make sure that I have enough servo to move the elevon when pulling out of a 10MPH dive
