The plane is basically finished All up weight (without fuel) is 43.2 lbs. The plane balances perfectly with no additional dead weight needed anywhere. Iím using the C.G. Guru unit from A.M.E. to do the weight and balance. Easy to use and dead nuts accurate. Itís a heck of a lot easier to do it this way rather than suspending the plane with ropes from the ceiling. The last thing to finish up (now that I know where the batteries need to go for balance purposes) is to build the battery and receiver mounts. Itís looking like Saturday is a go for the maiden.

Hi Gordon,

What did you use to cut out your CF Rudder Horn?

I put a metal cutting blade into the bandsaw. Works great for Carbon fibre.

I would enjoy building another one of these planes! Quality materials, fit and finish! I was chatting with Cam MacCausey about the finished weight and he said this is about average. If you ask him to really build one light, he can get them down to just over 40 lbs.
