There are darn few ARF profiles with that carbon fiber reinforcing. Historically that's a feature you'll need to build to get.

Lately though, there are 2 ARF's on the scene with carbon tube reinforcements through the length of the fuse (that I know of) -

Here's the full length video of the EE V2 (71" version, 30cc gas), before the crash. Great flying plane, and very tough and repairable for all your 3D practice
Probro Wrings Out the EEV2 to the limit...and beyond (7 min 38 sec)

So I took the plane apart and I lied about added weight, it was 12.5oz of lead. I'm going to order the 3 lighter servo's and fiji bottle kit.

I just re read this. Did you try to richen the high end a bit instead of leaning it. Sounds as if it was lean to begin with.

Yes if I start to richen it the RPMs start to drop and it won't open up , if I lean it it wines down or stalls at wot. I found my peak RPMs 8350 ish and set to 8100, then adjusted low end for a fast response. It doesn't miss or get hot during flight. I can touch the end of the crank by the prop for a few seconds and not get burned. It does have a good amount of black liquid on the plane side so thought it was running rich. I think I found a way to drop 1lb so working on it now. I need to find some longer cable for the rudder, I'm moving the rudder servo 6 inches forward.

Sounds like you got it tuned.
For rudder cable the local fishing/ Sporting store should have what you need.
I picked up some wire leader in a roll and some aluminum crimps.

Ok I have managed to move the rudder servo up 7 inches to the wing tube, should know soon about how much I shaved off and if I fixed the CG issue. I think I have removed 12oz so far.

You want to have the vent line extend past the rear of the tank a bit to prevent from siphoning on the downlines.

12 oz should make a big difference. Keep going if you can.
I mounted the battery on the firewall and ignition on the engine mount beam to get the cg right.
I also use the dubro rubber/foam padding when mounting the rx,battery,ignition,fuel tank and kill switch.
All tied down with velcro straps.

I did I cg test and weight test, I'm at 10.6lb and just a touch nose heavy now. I think I can drop a 1450mah lipo and be 10.5lb and level on cg. Thanks so much for your guys help.

Now you're coming into a weight range where the plane is going to start becoming pretty capable. Nicely done.

Just be careful on that first test hop..... you don't want to send it to airplane heaven too quickly! Be very careful of your elevator throw as the plane slows until you get to know it. It's VERY easy to let it slow enough where enough "up" elevator is required/added where the air moving over that control surface separates/stalls - leaving the nose of the plane pointed straight down with no room to recover (headed for airplane heaven). In fact, I'd encourage you to check that out at 3 mistakes high as part of your maiden - assuming everything else is going well.

Let it slow down as if you were on final. Watch for the point you run into wing rock, where the plane becomes difficult to control, and note that speed in your head. Do that a few times. Look at the attitude of the plane. Is it level, or maybe tail low/nose high in a 3 point landing stance? Note that as well. Noting the plane's speed and attitude as it is here, should make your first few landing approaches much less stressful. Otherwise, you can be playing a very dangerous game feeling these attributes out while on final.

Being pretty familiar with Gaylord weather, hope you get some weather to let you try that out soon! Best of luck! -Al

I had it that way and found it leaked a lot of fuel, is that normal?
