I'm doing the same kit right now.  So far I'm ready to monokote it, this has been a great build!  Can't wait to fly her!

I haven't flown mine in a while due to it being way tail heavy.I'mplanning on adding foam to the outside of thefuseand then carve/sand to scalish shape. Then My friend and I will use it as a plug and make a fiberglass fuse. Should be alot lighter and fly better. May try to figure out how to do a foam core wing also, but I don't know.
Just need to finish up my other project then start this one.

Looks great redbee!

How far along are you in the build ? Can you take out the firewall and re-glue ? This is not something you want to leave in like this.

If cannot take out, put in another firewall in front of the original, with the "right thrust" (no pun intended) built in. If this is the case, will push your CG more forward, and throttle linkages will be longer.
