Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

This was the second sailplane I had.
Did a few modifications to it like removing the tip dihedral and adding ailerons.
This sailplane flies on a slope with almost no wind, mine weighted about 700 grams but today with micro servos and lighter batteries could be made with about 500-550grams easily.
Thanks for the input kenb on 23/01/2016 13:46
Dropping that much weight in incredible! Good idea.
Gentle Lady RCM-791 AeroFredUneditedPlans on 23/01/2016 14:13
This was in the 90´s I had 3 standard 40 grams servos and a 7 ch 40 grams football receiver, not to mention the 4 cell AA receiver pack, Today we could add 3 micro servos 5-9 grams, 1 500 mAh lipo and a micro receiver, it´s easy to save weight nowadays :)
