Wow. Is anyone else freakin out waiting to see the Jer-O-plane in flight? I thought it was kinda funny at first, but man, am I anxious to see how she flies with a pilot, her flight characteristics with added weight, etc. Which naturally begs the question, how much weight could she handle? Looks like empty seats in there...:D

I used to think about Dead action figures and what they'd do. I figured Jerry would just push his glasses back up on his nose and Bobby's figure would spit while singing.

Iv thought about that alot...The prop is balanced- the control surfaces throws are set- the center of gravity looks good forward to aft...Now Jerry does have some weight to him so I am worried about the plane rolling to the left...So to set the roll CG correctly I might have to add some weight to the right wing...but its got the big dog 480 brushless out-runner motor on er and the 12x6 prop so even w the added weight it should climb straight up :P
