Congrats, and don't forget to post some pics of your Predator.
Thanks for the info. I guess I just have to add a tiny bit of lead to achieve the cg that I am shooting for. I am trying to get it at 2 1/4" back from the LE. Where is your CG
. I like my planes a bit nose heavy from that point. I hate to maiden a new (heavy plane) that is also tail heavy. I am coming in 11 oz. over the Flying weight on the box. I have a small carbon rod sticking out the front that I am using to secure the hatch. I was thinking of sliding a small egg sinker on that to keep the oz way out front. Might even make people ask what is that for?
Had to add two more oz of lead in the nose, but now she is slightly nose heavy. Me Likely nose heavy. Ready to maiden when I get a new 9 X 6 prop
My Rubber Band wing attachment looks good. No magnets or bolts to deal with. I put two small carbon rods through the wing, so they protrude out the top and bottom a little. More on the bottom, and I put them on a slight angle to prevent the bands from possibly slipping off, which they probably wouldn't, just me being anal AGAIN
