Be sure to clean the wire with a little WD40 on a rag. They will rust from the salt.

You did a great job on this SSX Bipe! When I like something I don't mind telling others about it The fact your planes are laser cut here in the USA is a big plus. The first day I had the SSX Bipe at our flying club two people asked for your web address after seeing it fly.

I do have a few questions for you

What kind of average flight times are you getting with the 11.1 480 TP and the 7.4 730? Also I with the X1806n 19g 2100KV motor what's the best battery for indoor flight?
I was thinking of 7.4 250mAh? or will i need a smaller motor also? Which leads me to the question of CG adjustment with the lighter batteries.

Was thinking of a balsa wood ramp on the battery tray so I can slide the battery forward to clear the motor mount.

How are you adjusting your CG?
