A little closer. A couple of issues to correct, accent color of dark blue. Now wait for Mother Nature.

Always nice to have a "Check List" when it comes to airplanes, no matter the size!!!

I should mention that I bound the receiver and operated the servos to make sure they are centered. Then found the length for the rods. Also made sure the motor was turning the correct direction.

Rudder and elevator servos installed. Used .060 carbon fiber rod with wire "S" ends. The rods are cut short and a piece of aluminum tube slid over the ends and ca'd. The aileron servo will be mounted above the others. To connect the aileron "S" wires I use heat shrink tube slid over the ends and ca'd.
Having fun trying to match the yellow.Tried chrome yellow,too dark. Blue angel yellow is close. 8"x3.4" prop, nice fan.

This is looking fine! I feel your pain- My prior builds all being Rubber FF, it's so firmly ingrained in me to build light from the center of balance back, it might have bitten me on my Waco.
I'm far enough along to start doing some preliminary checks and I may have to put the battery a few inches aft of the empennage to get it right! It's different when one does in fact have a metaphorical "big round engine" hanging off the front!

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.
