Alex thanks for your input ! Follow along this is going to be like nothing you ever seen before. The 1/8 aluminum on the fuselage is going to be a inverted U to attach the wings to going half way down the fuselage an exoskeleton  of sorts the bottom half is going to be foam and fiberglass the inverted U will have lightening holes in it of course about 1 1/2 lbs and  go from forward of the wing 2/3 of the way to the front   of the plane from the wing back the inverted u will taper up from the bottom and in on the sides and the horizontal stabilizer and vertical fin will be attached to it  there will be a angle of incidence wedge between the wing and the fuselage depending on what gets put in the plane camera etc  the wing can be moved forward or back if the COG changes the reason the bottom half of the plane is foam and fiber glass is because the antennas are going to be located inside there  I am going to finish building the wing then I will draw it up Thanks again Carl
