Ok, Printed the plans, at a 16" wingspan, drew up the cut files and had the balsa cut. Once I started building the fuselage it became apparent that I went a bit small. There was no way to get an elevator servo inside the fuselage. Even a 6gram servo was too tall once I put the arm on it. So I cut an access hole in the bottom and mounted it from the bottom up. Had to cover it first as it would have been a pain afterward. Then figured might as well mount the engine too. Pictured next to the wee stick you can see how small the fuselage is.
