Usually a stretch is to offset a heavy engine.  And the last thing you need with a heavy engine is small wings.  JImChuk

Well, I could certainly use a little assist as to how best extend the fuselage on my C-Model AVID. I did purchase the wing extension kit some time ago from Airdale. I'm in the process of getting that task done right now. Next task will surely be to extend the fuselage to accommodate the heavier Subaru EA-81 Engine & electric Warp Drive prop I just purchased. 

And and all help on the Fuselage Extension is welcomed :-) Not sure how best to get after it. The airplane has not been covered & painted yet, which is a big help at this stage. 

 

Thanks to anyone with experience extending their fuselage.
