Default hydroplane help

Hey all,
I have a Graupner Hydroplane that I'm building and I have run into a bit of a snag. Have any of you built one of these? If so, I'd really be interested in talking to you.

Thanks

Mark

Hey Dick,
Thanks for the offer, but my questions are around actually building the model, things like balance, CG, where the battery goes, how easy is it to get it in and out, can you get it out once it's in...Most stuff that I would be looking to get from someone who has actually built one of these models from Graupner.

Thanks again...

Mark
