As I hear it, the important things are
1. the surface alignments (wing elevator rudder), and the balance point. (duh), but the electronics placement is so the balance is easier and a little component weight as possible. high thrust/weight ratios help big on these planes.
I crash every sim attempt I have with these, which is why I'm not attempting one yet.
But I say just go for it! you got this. Cut like the wind.
for me electronics are my nemesis
I was thinking that I probably need to try and keep the wing and elevator exactly on the thrust line...or knowing my luck, as close as I can. I've seen others add carbon fiber rods to help with strength. I don't have any good thicker carbon fiber so I may just settle on some standard thicker wire.
