More pics.........

I about have this done, just need to balance, adjust throws and decals..

The CG is3.5" per the manual and they said that having the battery where they showed it and where I put ityou would be pretty close to them numbers, MYAZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!! Right now with the way it is in the pics, it's way tail heavy, a Ni starter and prop wrench wasn't enough, it's what was on the bench in reach..lol I will move the battery to the nose and see what else I will need, I do have an aluminum spinner on order. The spinner and prop nut is heavier then the temp I have on there now, so it should help..


Few things I did..

I added a remote starter and put it up top where it's nice and easy to use, I don't mind the extra hole.. I went with a fuel dot to keep the easy thyme going..lol
I also ran the Crank vent tube into the fuse and exited it aft the wings to help cut down on the mess...
The servos in the back are Hyperion Atlas Micros, you have to use micros on the elv. and I am glad of that. The balancing issue would be much worse had I been able to use standard servos..
I will take morepics when she is ready for the air..........
