    it's a pitty rich as problems like this could put people of buying this kit and as i looked at it cutting the end off was the only way of sorting the problem out then you have to put it all back together again

    well guys spent today putting the hull back together this i did using a product we use at work called plexus it's a 2 part epoxy resin that is very strong and the only way to get it apart is to heat it up no pics today as it all needs to be cleaned up but i do have a question for you all , when having a look at the rear dive plane i noticed that i have only got 10degrees up plane and 15degees down plane will this be ok or do i have to scratch my head abit more i've already moved the bel crank for lack of space so any imput would be great

    I think I'm right in saying that amount of movement is about right, mate...I asked Paul Cook the very same question, and his Biber has about the same amount of movement.

    Don't forget it's massive dive plane with an enormous amount of surface area.
