Nutball RET Build 05

Finally completed the Nutball build! I'm calling her Cat Scratch :)

Right now, she's balanced at maybe 26-28% behind the leading edge of the airfoil. Seems to be fine?

One of the things I decided about the build was to use only hot glue for all the parts. Hot glue unfortunately, appears to weigh a ton! While I estimated Cat Scratch to come in just below 200 grams, she now weights in at 217 grams!

Upcycled some plastic from a plastic box to make the control horns. They were rather flimsy, so I put in a short stick of basswood to accompany it.
She flew really well, and I hope to get a video tomorrow :)
