I am fitting my Falcon 46 into the 30 size Augusta 109 fuselage and I was wondering if any of you guys had some do's and don'ts for me.

Also, if some golden-hearted scaler could give the right length for the tailboom, that would be awesome.

TIA.

Don't know the measurements of the tail boom, but the only thing I would advise is, wait until you have the mechanics at least priliminarily installed to measure and see exactly what blade length you can use. Then by all means use the longest mainrotor blades you can. You are taking a double dose of "heavy" by adding the fuse and shortening the boom and blades. I've got a Schweizer 300 built on a shortened Falcon and I was able to get by with 570 mm blades and it still flys pretty good with autos being no problem.

Thanks man.

That really helps.

How about wider blades ?

By all means, wider is better for lift. Also, if you do not intend to do aerobatics including inverted flight, and not many scalers do, don't be affraid to go with semi-symetrical blades as they will provide more lift than symetricals.
