Leaving it in YELLOW Mark ? JJ will see it better  %%  What are the pods on the bottom for ballast or propulsion ?

The pods are filled with lead, lowing the c.g and also allowing for adjustment of longitudinal trim.

Looking good do you have more pics of the build ??

My Bat is waiting for my attention on the table.

BTW will 40MHz FM do the job or should I dust of the old 27MHz AM equipment ?

40mhz is what most of us use, works fine.
