Yup, that's it. Thanks for that link. I saw that before but could not remember the name to post a link. Nice detailed plans for building that and it won't break the bank.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.

Re: Balancing plane?

Thanks for all the tips on balancing and such.. I have had the time to balance and look but no time to build poor old Vanessa.. soon though.. I tlak to a friend of mine that has few carden and comparfs and the guy behind this Sig edge..

The 3rd photo is where the batts had to be. So from my first finding I had to add 1.5 pounds to the nose to make it balance.. What I did was moved the motor 7/8" forward and moved batts up front.. I am going to I think make a mount out of some kind of wood (your recommendation) to move motor 1" forward from previous and move batts back to there intended spot..

Any input would be awesome .. thanks

FYI I am growning my hair long so I have a chance to have a good hold of it while pulling...
