Default RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

Got mine last week. I was looking for a everyday, local field, beater I which would work with my 4 year old Wren 54 (fully manual version). Our runway is only 300 ft aspalt. The smaller Nitro Bobcat was too small however this one seems to be a perfect fit.
Quality of the ARF better than I had anticipated considering the price. A couple of the fuse formers are loose but that is a good thing, because it makes them easier to remove which is necessary to mount the 50oz fuel tank and equipment. In my opinion there are way too many formers anyway. The fiberglass fuse is pretty thick and the wing root is reinforced with a ply doubler. I am also replacing all the plastic bolts w/ metal bolts for the boom and stab attachments. I am doing away with the twin elevator servo setup in favor of a single 9411 mounted in the stab. All of the retract wells/rails are installed and precut ready to accept your retracts. Anybody have their retracts installed yet? I am thinking about Robart 630's

Here are a few pics. I think I just finished the hardest part of the build which was , How to mount the turbine?
