My setup is the setup package offered to me at the time of purchase.

I am by no means disappointed with the airplane, just think I needed some more get up and go. I let off the throttle just a little bit and she wanted to drop out of the sky. Here is a "SHORT maiden flight video". The first try failed, as my expectation of climb was off, second flight was success full, but was lacking a massive amount of power. maybe upgrade to a bigger motor for next flights?
