The final pre aint jobs continue, last night I started running all the wiring through and did the final set up of elevaor drives, I've made brass tube inserts for the connection between the pushrods end and elevator horns so now when I assemble the tail I can drop the new brass tube horn ends into the aluminialuminium pushrod ends and secure with a screw through both, I also rebuilt the rudder drive with a double ball on the idler bellcrank which has removed all slop and improved the geometry of that somewhat, the rear of the fuselage is now all programmed and working I have had the wings all working but will be doing another final hook up and test of flaps and ailerons before paint now that the hinging is all permanently attached, I've settled on ,in the cavity under the wing as the perfect spot for the receiver so the extension leads all are set up to go up to there including doubled up power wiring from the Front mounted battery tray.

Under 23kg is looking like the current estimation based on prepaint weights
