Yet another attempt at getting the Sopwith Triplane to fly

Following failure after failure, my scratch-built Sopwith Triplane has been gathering dust for quite some time. I’ve decided to give it another go.

The plane seems really tail heavy, so I’m drastically shifting the weight. I’ve rebuilt the motor mount to move the motor forward about an inch. I’ve moved the battery all the way to the front, and have the ESC (and some lead) sitting on the firewall as well.
