    Yes, the unsheeted foam wing idea allows a full depth hard balsa spar to be unlaid pretty easily.

    Yep. Make it fast but easy to see, easy to have fun with. With a APC 6.5 x 5 it will put out over 3 pounds of thrust. With only a little more than 200 sq inches of wing area, I'm tempted to add some...

    Try reducing your control movements.
    All you should need is 10 degrees for the elevator and even less than that for the ailerons.

    Your throttle sleeve has about 98 fewer parts than the one that a huckster was trying to sell here for a considerable amount some time ago.
    I'll bet it works just as well and weighs much less.

    The prop did take on a nice polish. You removed enough mass to make a difference, I'll bet.
    It'll be interesting to see how the engine responds.
