Few more things checked off the to do list. One of these was to pull the pipe and shorten it a bit. I think it looks much better now. Once that was done I could install the Jets Munt M250XBL. The mounting holes for this engine end up being almost directly on the edge of the bypass. To get around this issue I installed some M4 blind nuts upside down after first opening up some clearance holes in the bypass. The M250 also has a short nozzle and consequently needs to be slurred pretty far back as well. Itís a tight installation but it worked out quite well.

Going to be P-220Rxi powered like mine.

Hi Dave, great thread and nice jet. From what I gather the air-frame is mostly CF. How does the antenna placement work with al that CF?

There are large areas around the fuselage skin that are std CARF glass layup. I used a torch to find these and placed the aerials there.
In this picture you can just see the Orange paint on mine shining through from a torch held under.
