Dead weight added before median to get correct CG. Bang Head
Thanks to Prady sir without him it was not possible to calculate correct CG
Plane was too tail heavy, so added 8 AA cells approx 200-300 grm in front of plane, this cause performance of the plane but defiantly help to fly properly.

Temporary landing gear show there weakness , but was strong enough to save lipo mounted at the bottom   Smiley

This was amazing experience to see my scratch build flying so nicely in first attempt.

One thing I notice and would like to share/ suggest all beginners like me

 SalutePlease visit your nearest field and senior RC flying members before you start with your new plane. Salute

 I have made mistake with my first scratch build BlueBaby 24” I tried it myself and never succeed. Every time tried to get into air it crashed on nose.

Without senior members like Pradi Sir , Amar Sir , Mohan Sir and Amit It was not possible to get my new bird to air.

Thanks Ashish.
As this plane was a quick build (almost built in couple of days) instead of waiting for exact build material and delay test flight I decided to go with things available with me (this specially applies for landing gear)
Sooner I’ll be changing this with actual lighter foam wheels.
