ive taken it for a fliy today.

i noticed that hovering was stable without even adjusting the trim. i noticed though when flying forwards then slowing down the tail drops with the in balance of weight.will have to try and add some weight to the nose.
i noticed that the inside of the fuse got warm, luckely the windows havent been fitted yet so there was some airflow. am going to cut a hole in the bottom under the engine

does anybody have experience with this, will that be enough to cool it down? apart from that it flew great, was very impressed with it.
since ive had it out of my shed for the day, ive noticed that the landing skids look small, and the front one is to far forward, can easily modify that.

looking forward to getting the mechanics back out and adding more detail then painting!!!

Nice work!
Only thing I can offer about cooling are the basics: Outside air needs to get directed ( via baffles if necessary ) to the engine as opposed to allowing the cooling fan to draw air from any direction. The size of the cooling air exit should be at least the size of intake, or larger, if possible.

i installed a piece of plywood in the fuse, i epoxied it in the put some fibre glass coth with epoxy resin on it to secure it. i then had some "L" shaped alluminium only about 0.5mm thick, i cut it and bent it to fit. once i got my head around that the mechanics would be fixed to the aluminium and the landing skids were attached to the aluminium it was easy. there was no weight or any kind of force on the fuselage from the plywood. when it was made the mechanics are attached to the aluminium, the aluminium is attached to the ply wood securely and the fuse just hangs on to the plywood by the epoxy resin.

Thanks!
