There would have been a problem, as it was suggested, with prop clearance. I wanted to stick with my proven setup of the 18" prop, so I needed to increase the height of the U/C. I looked at a few carbon jobs but at £40-£60 I could not justify the expense on this so called Economical plane. So having put my brain into overdrive, a piece of ply was sanded into a double wedge piece which angled the supplied u/c down a bit. The wheels are at a bit of an angle, but I hope this will not matter too much. I have gained an inch of clearance, this should be enough but if it is not I could always try a 17" or 3 bladed prop. As a last resort I could go for a proper longer u/c.
It's almost ready to go, I need to fit the tailplane, and wings making sure they are all at the correct incidences. All servos Rx etc are in except the ignition battery which I am leaving till last to set the final balance point. I have already balanced the plane and it was spot on 175mm back from the leading edge, half way between the manufactures recommended positions.
If I manage to complete the remaining jobs this week it may get it's first flight this weekend!
If anyone would like more info just let me know, just do not ask how much it weighs.:-(
