Default RE: Katana 50 by Hangar 9

Well I'm an idiot, I had one of my balancer rulers set wrong. One was set at 4 3/4" and the other was at 4 1/4"
The manual states that anywhere between 4 3/8" to 4 3/4" is fine, I was shooting for the 4 3/4".. I still did have to put some lead in the nose, 2.16oz.. I will chalk that up to the hinges and glue I used on all the control surfaces, but in my mind it's worth it... I added the weight to the motor box opposite of the motor to help with balancing it latterly, that and moving some things around inside got that taken care of....

She is out of the shop and ready for it's maiden tomorrow. I willlet y'all knowhow she does tomorrow night and maybe a vid too...
