Got the Canard redesigned and flying today. Removed the weight at the end of a boom sticking out the front. Added another fuselage section to the front that is telescopic. Overall length is now at a maximum of 53".
After I watched this video last night, I decided to head to the Dollar Tree for some more foamboard and I've built a new APD. This will be the 5th APD i've built. I just have to install the elevon servos and program the tx and I'll be ready to fly. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
