Default Guillow 16" span electric conversion

Here is my rc micro conversion Bf-109, just about to start covering, as soon as my radio arrives. I went kind of crazy with lightening holes... Building skeleton structures would have been much better weight wise, but I was too lazy. Will be "gear up" or as the Germans say, "ein." I built up a new nose which is about 3/8" longer than the vac form kit one. This will help out with the moments. Balsa will also absorbe impacts better. My plan is to split it, horizontally, top half will come off (held with magnets and .010" steel strips), will give access to motor and battery, wing will be held on with magnets. Planning on doing a Battle of Britain scheme with green and pale blue tissue. Weight is an all encompassing issue, I am trying to make it fly with the Powerplant from a micro foamy Flyzone biplane. Will soup it up with a bigger prop. Just getting back into the hobby, if nothing else it's an experiment. FLIGHT TEST?!
