Great looking plane Ray!!!
You may laugh but it might fly better flying faster. We tend to slow planes down to near stall, especially some designs like the birds, and then we wonder what is wrong.
To shift the CG forward on the Peregrine I replaced the BW1300 with a BP21 rather than adding weight. they both fit in the same motor mount. I did it for the weight but love the power. It's cool having a bird that will do vertical performance.
It really freaks out the eagles and hawks.
I have friends trying to get me back into flight school to study the left stick on my transmitter and how to use it. Hey what's wrong with WOT. If you got it why not use it.
