    Oh man, oh man! What a beautiful video and airplane Roger. That engine is so cool. Looks like she’s gonna be a floater with all that wing. Lots of down trim required me thinks. Congrats Roger! That thing is the tits!!

    About the hold down . I have to hold the top wing because the rigging is the only thing holding the wings on so you don't want to be pulling on the wings to hard as it would be putting a real strain on the rigging. It doesn't use a real wing tube ,only a small square aluminum wing locator and no wing bolts . . I built the center section of the upper wing extra strong to withstand the load of the run up . It did take a couple of clicks of down to trim but after landing the elevator looks level . It's a real floater but very well behaved . just love it ..
