Finally got around to reading the 'build' thread and have dipped into this one. Suggestion, put a bigger fuel tank in, you don't have to fill it. But if you ever get an urge to attend Oshkosh or sun n'fun, you may appreciate it. For such rare use, I'd leave everything else as is and make allowances for longer TO and lower g's if you use it. 30lb baggage is unlikely with your case size.
