Going back to the landing gear fairings. They are made out of balsa and so may be prone to damage along with the landing gear mounting points in a less than perfect, ie standard for me, landing. The mounting points is an easy fix by adding some glass fibre bandage to the area shown in yellow in the picture. I may also look to beef up the fairing with either ply or glass fibre board which will also help stop the landing gear from bending but not sure yet. I think this bird will probably be slightly tail heavy and I’d rather add weight by adding strength than by adding lead. We’ll see.
