Thanks for the help, glacier. One thing puzzles me though, the tail was out of alignment when I got it, and it flew perfectly fine then, with no left or right tendencies at all. Also, the up elev. was caused by the servo glitching when I unplugged the battery, it just gave a tiny bit of up elevator.

On a lighter note, I finally managed to retrieve the canopy and the O/B flight recorder that was in it in the last flight from the 20' high tree - tree climbing is not fun! (thankfully the recorder isn't damaged, despite spending the night in high winds and rain!)

When I installed the new firewall, I cut off all the crushed foam to a 90degree angle with the wings, using the molded panel lines for guidance. I then made the firewall parallel to the cut.

They are looking for a Latvian distributor. This could be your chance to get rich!
