Tom, As usual I got ahead of my self and ca'd the control horns in the rudder and elevator. Now I have to connect the rods to the tail and insert the rods as I glue the tail on. Ouch!
I can move the battery to where the seat would be, wire length. I'll still have to add weight in the tail. MY thought is not a problem, r/c stuff is so over powered it won't matter. This may go 9oz.. I think it's going to be a rocket any how. Not really looking for one, just a good flyer.

No chance of moving the battery back to counter the balance?

Have to cover the sides first, before I can install the push/pull rods. I can attach the tail surfaces with the rods attached. The rods are carbon fiber with aluminum tube links. It looks like it's going to be nose heavy, will add weight to the tail.

I've been working on the motor install and the cowl. Sand and fill next. Servo push pull rods and then cover.

Working on the cowling. Stuffing a 180 Licomming in it. Starting to look good. Saw a 180 powered Couger at the airport, looked awesome. Got on down the road at 180mph.

Finally figured what to do for aileron operation, torque tubes installed and ailerons built. I inlarged Peanut drawings 100%, didn't expect to see poor drawings. They are not symmetrical at all.

Got the cowling set up, awaiting the motor and prop. Landing gear installed. Servos will be installed after the motor shows up. C/G will be determined at that time. Starting to look like a Couger.

Have the wings well along. Had to tie in a spar. Since it was a peanut plan I had to strengthen the wing. Torque tubes will operate the ailerons.

Looks like you're making good progress.  I used torque tubes when I was building rc  but I also used the flex tubes & cables by Sullivan.

Spent some time mulling over on how to build the wing. Want to use the ailerons, but the wing is only 5/16 thick. Decided to build it with the forward part sheeted top and bottom and the aft with open ribs. There will be a torque tube to drive the ailerons.
