Default Construction Pics of a Carden 35% Edge 540

as long as you are not using a 3w 100 you can build it first.
i thought the plane was designed around either the da or 3w and was dissapointed when i had to shave .150 thou off the back of my 3w to get it to fit. if i had ck'd it prior to assy i would have cut .250 off the front of the motor box. the engine was in my h9 cap 232 and i didn't think it nec to ck it first. ooops!! I also mounted my cowl with the supplied plywood but attached it to f2. I didn't care for the gap between the cowl and fuse it showed in the plans. I also went with the 3 8411 huffmeier pull pull setup from sam malone, very nice.
