    Next I made a battery tray out of the Krill silver fiberglass/plywood board and added the throttle servo mount to the bottom of it. The servo mount is something I cobbled together from spare parts. The shape of the tray really shows the offset in the dome for engine thrust.

    Here are some pics of the fuel tank tray. It's a part that came with the airplane. The tank is a PAU Pro tank..... VERY nice!

    I have since moved the receiver from where it's mounted in these pics. After testing the tray in the plane I decided the receiver was way to hard to get to in that location.

    Not too bad. The last few months have been filled with potholes, but things seem to be a bit smoother now. :)

    Here are more pictures.

    The spark plug leads were just long enough to exit through the sides of the dome and reach without being stretched like guitar strings. The pic also shows the batteries mounted on the tray. Access is fairly good through the top holes.


    I had made a rudder tray earlier out of carbon balsa sandwich, but I didn't like how it fit so I made a new one out of the Krill silver board. You can see how much taller I made the second one. It made the rudder cables fit better.

    I made a small tray attached to the fuel tank tray to hold the gyro. I also made a plate to hold the charge leads for the batteries.

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    Yes sir I concur …..His hiding out in a pothole for a bit morphed him to "Mr. Fancy Pants". Makes me wonder if I go crawl under a rock what kind of "fancy" I could do o_O. Now if you all would excuse me.....I have a pretty big rock I need to go find. Maybe @stangflyer will be hiding under it ???

    This airplane uses carbon fiber landing gear with fiberglass covers. I had to spend quite a bit of time to get the covers to fit up to the fuselage, but it worked out fairly well. I'm not looking forward to mounting these after it's painted since they get glued to the legs and it's pretty much guess work.

    After a lot of measuring and drawing I cut the slots in the sides for the rudder cables. I used some fishing line and some temporary fittings and ball links to make sure I had them in the right place.
