Default RE: The Smasher - Building the Wood V-Tail

My Smasher flies great. I am currently flying powering mine with a Jett 426 engine.

Mine ended up needing some nose weight to balance. I think this was due to a long tail moment and the lightweight 426 engine.

If you plan on using a 426 or other lightweight engine, then a lightweight tail is required to avoid nose weight.
