Don't own one but have flown one very recently Andy, and as you say, my colleague duplicated his Boomerang set up.

This model flew straight from the box beautifully with no vices, and is the ideal step up to a low winger.

Is very stable and standard servos recommended, in this case Futaba 3001, but any standard servo will suffice

This guy is a builder, with the hatch very neatly cut behind the nose wheel former under the tank bay

The cuts are made a beam width from the fuz sides, that beams to maintain strength are added inside the new

hatch access, with the balsa sheet left behind, aiding adhesion and alignment of the strengthening.

Am lucky to maiden these projects, and have to say that the Sport 40 responds very positively to electric flight.
