Hi Glen,

Wing span is 1875 mm with SFG

The model flown at the WC had traditional wingtips

The kit has SFG, but you can do your own wingtips ...

JP,

Thanks, I like the ability to switch between the SFG vs. traditional tips to judge which has benefits flying the US AMA Masters schedules. To me the SFGs had little to no value on the Passport.

T-canalyser installation
A small shim on the right side of the fuselage is needed to have the T square
I did it with Bob Violett Poly Ply

Next is the stabilizer setting
There is no incidence adjusters
Both elevators are accurately set to operate parallel with BRYAN HEBERT magic tools

Then throws are set and checked with an Aero perfect digital

BJ read on RCU I had just 3 air exits on each side of the fuselage, and holes in the tail post.

He recommend to have more air exits, a tenth of holes underneath the fuselage.

I opened the rear of the canopy to avoid some extra pressure in this area, leading to the canopy leaving the fuselage in flight ...

I reinforced too the small plywood parts with Bob Violet Poly Ply

Hi Steve,
I remember very well the 90's, when I was in std-by in LA between Paris and Tahiti
I met Warren Fox at Mile Square Park, he was flying with a Jekyll built by Gregg OKERT
Warren introduced me to Gregg ... I had soon the same plane built by him
I spent a lot of time in his workshop, he really inspired me ...
He is a master builder and such a nice guy

Battery tray
In order to be able to fly with 5000 mah THUNDER POWER packs or 6000 mah on a windy day, I determined accurately where to position the battery tray to achieve the recommended 230 mm to 260 mm from the leading edge CG
The 10 mm square carbon is drilled for the 8 mm carbon tube.
The bottom frame touch the landing gear box
The D3 ESC is mounted with velcro on a small balsa carbon tray.
Positioning the D3 in front of the air intake is very important according to Adam DEBOWSKI to have a good ventilation, specially on a hot day
