here is some...its my first attempt, so its sometimes misframed...

Drenalyn RC plane (4 min 34 sec)


I have found on the 13"er that since the battery accounts for a significant portion of the total weight, placing the battery on the fuse side is not optimum...you will notice in the video a lot of right turns....because the battery is mounted on the right side, right turns are more natural, smooth and easy....after I shot the video, I moved the battery to the top of the wing and this small movement to the centerline made turns equally easy and rolls much more smooth and axial...you wouldn't think that 1/8" movement of the position of the battery's center would make such a big difference, but lateral balance is very important on these very light craft...
