Default 36% KATANA QUESTION

Hi,

Does the 36% Katana tend to come out tail heavy? I will have a DA-100, using a pull-pull rudder and li-ion batteries. I was originaly going to buy carbon-fiber wing and stab tubes, but I thought it was a lot of $$ for only a few ounces. I did buy carbon fiber gear for the mains and tail wheel.

If they tend to come out tail heavy, I will order a carbon fiber stab tube if you think it will make much difference. How much weight does the carbon fiber stab tube save?

Thanks!!!

It will come out a little tail heavy with a DA but i used a carbon tube on mine wich saved about 4 ounces in the tail which really did help i also put my batteries up by the engine box and went with a pull-pull on the rudder. So really just build it carefully and pay attention and you will be fine.

Thanks Mark.

How much do you guys charge for a carbon fiber stab tube?

How long would it take to get it?

Thanks again!
