Dumb question but do you have to build it exactly like the plans with the long nose and everything or can you slide the wing forward a bit? :)

    Well, that could get into splitting hairs. For profile, no problem as anything goes as far as moments and such, but for N-30, depends on what the rules say. For Classic, you can't change moments or airfoils, and if the same holds true for N-30, then a true sportsman would abide by the rules and build it as the original plans present it. Moving the wing forward changes two moments, nose and tail. If you build it as presented, but cut an inch off the nose, that may get a passing nod, as that is what was done typically back in the day. Again, a true sportsman would build it as presented and a Fox .35 for power, as the design was intended for. If you can't do that, pick another design that you think you can.

 Or, you could just build a Twister.  :)
