Default Peter Rake SE5

Here is a Peter Rake Se5 I built with a 36 inch wing span. I used some of the details from the Electrifly SE5 such as the landing gear, pilot and exhaust stacks. She is a grea flyer with a 400 rimfire motor. Covered with Monokote.

Looks really great , did you use the cabane and interplane struts ? Is it LIGHTER than the Electrifly SE5a ? Did you have to add any weight to the front for c of g balance ?
Was the balsa hand cut or was this a laser cut kit from someone ?

I only used the interplane struts. Yes it is lighter than the Electrifly kit and it balances perfect. It is a laser cut kit from Manzano laser.

THat looks really neat work. Makes the DB 1:10 scale one I am building look scruffy!
