As far as CG check our CG section that will get you to a formula for swept wing aircraft.  Look at delta aircraft. 

Here's the link to the CG calc: Click Here

Black tissue is a great base for a silver finish.  Doesn't take much silver to cover the tissue either. Nice light finish.  If you're going with a black over all finish I'm looking forward to seeing it finished! Smiley

Looks good.  Did you use any balsa or bamboo to keep the empennage from warping?


Naw, it didn't warp. The design actually braces each other, the rudder slits,then then the elevator slides into that, then hot glued it.
I'm covering the fuse today, black black black....looks bad!

Sky9pilot....I should of....I got lost in 'wrapping' the power pod and still keeping it scale-ish. If we build another one, the motor needs to be 1 section closer to the nose, and place the battery pack/timer one the cg. I would also try to make a cheater door on the bottom side Tongue
As it is, I've learned a lot, I may cut the canopy open in the front, a 'scoop'....because my intake is the same size as my exhaust...
Anyways I'll show the batt door, and how it's held on. I soldered 2 short brass to pins, the the aluminum tubes go through them, back to a wall. To change the 70mah battery you will just pull these out, and the door falls off.


Pins are yet to be anchored.....

Might I suggest 1/16"X1/32" stringers attached on the 1/32" edge. Koutny style that yields a nice round fuselage without the weight of using 1/16"sq stringers.
