Default New gear

Got the new landing gear and wheels on, removed the tail feathers and replace tail wheel bracket. Covering was poor so just decided to go all out with new colors and fillets too. Found a lighter tail wheel, and I guess the lighter landing gear offset the tailwheel - no change in nose weight. Weighs 4.4 lbs AUW...about 2 times what I figured, but she flew well on the last flight. I hope to try some different props next flights- got a 9x6 on it now. Picked up a 9x7 and 9x8. It flew well at half throttle. Had to add 12 oz. in the nose to balance, so that was part of the weight increase.
