YC-14 Nose Job

As much as I liked the dome it messed with the planes gc and balance.

I opted for a rounded nose.

Cutting in some windows.

I used the rounded “gut roll” piece for the front.

Hmm seems to remind me of a CH-113 LABRADOR.

Should help with the take off. A little more nose up.

Working on the balance.

Balance has improved but still needed a battery on the tail.

By moving the batteries back to the original position the CG improves.

Slightly nose down but no cargo in the rear.

Had to make a small stand since there gear are not installed on the plane.

Speaking of gear. Wheels are still to small and the rear setup is all wrong.
