Is the bevel on the bottom trailing edge of the sport wing supposed to be a cavity and c fold?
@Battery800 - The trailing edge of the sport wing is supposed to be a cavity I believe, to accomodate a C-fold. so 2 thicknesses of Foam board wide. TBH - I never built the Sport wing.

And if the sport wing is supposed to have flaps, the trailing edge is too short, as there is only about it 1/3 of an inch of space

So I was putting everything together today, and it is too tail heavy, like almost an inch back from the cg spot. I think it’s because of all the reinforcement I added to the tail because I crumpled it up when I was putting it in, and it weighs over 400g without any extra balancing weights

Well I switched the stock nose for a nose like thedifferentdesigner’s super explorer so I can move the battery forward and stuffed another one in there and it balances almost at the cg mark now

You could lengthen the nose to use weighted leverage to help with getting the CG forward. That way you save the extra battery weight

That looks great! I can't wait to see it in the air.
