I'd be happy to post it if you can't get it to post yourself.

I do not have any plans for my canard,  I built it to the ILAR (it looks about right) method and got lucky with this one. I did not need to add any weight for trimming. On the first flight I had not sealed the balsa so she was absorbing some moisture after a few landings. For the second flight I sprayed a light coat of laquer all over and a second lightly dusted coat on the underside only. I will draw up the model if anyone is interested in building one.

Great model you have there.  Looks like she is trimmed out very well.  The last video shows a very smooth glide.  Well done.  Did you draw up any plans of this little gem?

This is my Canard 12 inch clg build, to my amazement she flew straight off the bench with no trimming out.
See a couple of flight vids below.
