She Flys! A bit underpowered with the AXI 2212/26 I had on her. When I turned into the wind I needed quite a bit of down elevator to keep her from nosing up into the sky.. what I expected on this tail heavy bird (2500MAH 11.1v Lipo.)

I have a Cheap 2600kv brushless motor outrunner I'll slap on her for now since she obviously needs more speed with the added weight to be happy. Its going to get hot and only give me 15-30m run times ubtill I can get a motor in the 1700-200kv range.

PS. While I was tossing her on my greenbelt out back, DOINK! A gust of wind flipped her and she fell nose in and up side down from 4-5ft. The servos that come with the Pod are Turngy TG9's. The Tilt Servo stripped its gears so I replaced it with an HS55.

Maybe I should put a servo saver on the tilt cam while Im still getting everything tuned....

All Up Weight = 852grams
