As time has allowed, a few more details added:
Motor label
Motor cooling "holes"
Mobius

The RW FBW has about 8 flights on it now. Having seen a similar arrangement done on a CrazE, I'd like to add a rearward facing Mobius (rearward so as not to "sand blast" the unprotected lens). Have not as yet figured out the attachment method I'd like, but added the Mobius to the same approximate location on the RF version.
Have also added the Mobius as a camera to the physics.

Getting closer to posting the Foam Board Wing.

Few more CS details are in such as all the gift card sections and maybe a bit more to do on the physics adjustments.
One observation (true in RF6 and RF7): the hand launch is not very realistic.
The real plane basically leaps out of my hand, but in "hand launch" RF always drips initially until it picks up speed-- rest of the flight characteristics match. The "discus launch" is closer to the real plane response.

Some newer renders..

You are welcome BD.

Weather will keep the real one grounded for a few days. Maybe next Wednesday I'll be able to get in a little "therapy" at break time..

Its all about Location

First off Id like to say thanks, for All your creative contributions. You do nice work.

I finally got around checking out the FBW in program.
Funny story. I just happened to be on Carl Henderson Field, RF7.5, when I down loaded the FBW,
On launch, It Exploded!
I tried it over and over, with the same result.
I thought maybe, the Strength Multipliers needed to be Increased for Discus Launch in RF7.5.
The Hand launch did work OK.
Turns out was the Pilot Station Fence.
The low trajectory of the Discus Launch goes right through the Fence. Even straight up wont cut it. You Can get away with turning Right, parallel to the runway.
It happens so fast on launch, and you cant see the plane, until you Rewind. I got a couple of pictures.
Figured Id let you know, since its bound to happen to somebody else.
Its Not a Problem with the with the Wing, its all about Location.
