I like the neutral CG too, so when you flip it inverted, it's on the same flightline.

Another method I use is to put a small slit down both sides and insert .026 plastic coated fishing leader wire. Flood it with thin CA. Makes for a rigid fuse.

There's a slot in the bottom for the batt. I cut a longer slot all the way up to the nose to get the 500ma batt far enough forward for decent flight. Flew good after that.
