The underfloor downforce loss is compensated by the large side wings, this design is far better than a single central wing in term of aerodynamic drag.

Yes the weight distribution is respected.

The total RTR weight is 831gr

Weight with box : 1247gr

Weight of the box (and old RC10L forgotten parts ) : 416gr

Any advance on this project? As a DW fan I considered making one myself but its good to see someone having a bit of fun with it
I am quite content with doing what I do

Don't mistake not being happy for unhappiness - its not the same thing
