You might want to review my thread , http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_86...tm.htm#8627790 and see if you want to address any of my planes issues. I am thoroughly convinced the tail moment needs to be longer and the fin rudder enlarged when using a big gas motor.

I have test flown about 5 airplanes since my Nosen trainer with zero problems ... the Nosen trainer beat me 3 out of 4 attempts to make it work... Maybe it was just my plane, or me.. But in case you hadn't read my thread .... I thought I would bring it up...

Yes ,sir I have read your thread ,it was very helpful and very well done .you stretched the fuselage if I remember right .I have made a mod to the tail, I went around the outside and added 3/4 inch ,it's not much but it looks right to methat adds 1 & 1/2 inch more height & lenght ==more area ...the plans and instructions state the tail & horiz. stab are not sheeted but monokoted -,if I need more weight to counter a nose heavy airplane ,I will sheet it and go heavy on the paint...Here is wing view with flap ...

The main gear was not as wide as the fuselage ,had to cut it and add twice the lenght from 4 to 8 inches wide.... Here we take a look at the size of the landing gear.. and the sides of the fuselage and window cutting
