Thank you!

Thank you. In this case, should I keep the plans' wing deCAlage and motor down/right thrust?

That is the kind of hint I love most: the "doable" type!:D

Your advice on CG is very clear, thank...

Hit Pay-dirt - figuratively and literally!

Check the picture: I got the nylon white 'pinion' and black 'spur gear' from a discarded printer toner refil.
It was pay-dirt because of the way the gear's 'teeth' are made, not at 90 degrees (I...

South,
Well designed plans take into consideration the building material. Therefore, you are probably right about the weight if you build it without updating the build technique.

good gearbox structure?

heh! :p
You think a processor heat-sink like this with well aligned holes drilled would make a good base for a gearbox reduction? Can you see it? ;)

dubro?

Dave, perhaps you should look into dubro's steerable taiwheel. If the size fits, the engineering seems to be quite fine.
