Roger ,
Nice to hear from you and hope you and your family are well , after picking it up I never thought it would be described as a floater but after you calculated the wing loading it’s far less than my other build project. I have spent another couple of days sorting the wire harnesses out installing a power box and securing the nose weight. Total so far is 39 lbs with just a pair of 2 s lipos to fit . As I want to use this off the slope I added wing tip skids rather than the supplied outrigger wheels that would probably just rip out with my usual fell top landings .
Take care .

As this is a big film covered model I enquired about getting a set of bags made for it to stop the inevitable dings and marks , but a shock at the cost ?? Full set including the two fuselage halves came in at €700 Euro !! The kit was only £750 , think I shall make my own .
