Canister tunnel

I have my canister mounts finished.
Took a little time but turned out well.

Update

Well I was able to make some good progress today.
Reinforced the firewall. I didn’t disturb the original, but added a 1/2” of ply epoxied, tristock and pinned in place.
Finished the motor/canister installation. Used extensions from spot on rc, grommets from lowes.
Throttle servo, ignition, smoke pump, and tapping in the smoke nozzels on deck.

I have a question regarding cowl cutting. I am getting close to the point of cutting the cowl for air exit. I have an Eme 70 twin installed and it looks as the openings in the cowl will flow directly over the cylinders. There is next to nothing for air exit. Also, should I make any exits for the canister mufflers?
Thanks
Dan

Thanks,
Bought mine in May at Joe Nall from Chief Aircraft. The stock firewall is 1/4”.( you can see the stock issue in the first pic above). I wasnt comfortable with that so I added to mine. I am use to my ef planes with a more stout setup. It would probably be ok, but since I was putting a 70 twin in it, I figured it wouldnt hurt. Weight addition was minimal and I put the rudder servo in the tail so cg should be pretty good. I’ll use the batts to fine tune it.

I need some measurements of this massive plane.
I have a pu with a 6í4Ē bed.. I already know i will have to put the plane in at an angle, with the stabs off.
Can anyone give me the length of the plane from the rudder to the landing gear..
And also the width of the landing gear itís self...

Thanks

when I transport my big planes the tailgate is down. some of them stick out. works just fine. you do not want to be taking the stabs off an airplane with flying wires and there's no reason you should have to. secure the tail and face the nose out.

Ill get some measurements for you, it will be friday before I can. If it helps, I plan to put this in an Expedition, tail on, hatch closed. I dont think I would want to take the flying wires apart often, but can be done.

The length from rudder to landing gear is 66”. Gear width is 31” from outer edge of each wheel.
Removing the rudder will save you some space. It is designed to be removable.
If you had to remove the stabs, the flying wires can be detached from the outer attach point which is only one nut/bolt per side and left hanging. Really not to bad, if necessary.
