Some good shots of my La-7 and Ricks at the Indiana Warbird Campaign at Muncie last weekend

Patrick, I appreciate your reply and have seen the awesome Dave Anderson LA-7, I however, have the CY models ARF. I've just got around to assembling it, and before I complete it, I'd rather change/alter/modify so that I don't have to repair a broken ship later. I was unclear on the mods/repairs that a couple of people have done on here. That being whether their mod/repair was done for aesthetics, or out of necessity for stopping nose overs.

Btw, you had to add 4.25lbs using a da 100!!??? Wow, I was planning on making mine a electric, so I guess I'll start looking for rocks and bricks to epoxy in the nose.

yes, I have read the entire thread twice. Just seems to me that if you want a scale bird build it. Trying to scale a out of scale arf doesn't seem worth it. Just my opinion of course.

yep, short nose and I should taken steps to lighten up the tail end as suggested by others who built that one but I didn't .

Has anyone else had nose over issues or other shortcomings with the CY LA-7? Issues that I can address before completing assembly?

Patrick, I'm already starting to look into pulling servo out of tail and relocating for lighter cg purposes. Definitely helpful if I do electric, but even I do gas, because I'll be using a dle 111.
