Let me know how yours flies Dan. Mine will not really climb, but will achieve level flight on the top of the pack. Only good for a minute or so before it becomes underpowered.

I am doing a mod right now to make it a pusher. I suspect that the prop position in the middle of the wing was destroying much of the lift. Probably not giving the best thrust either.

I reversed my polarities on the motors and put the prop on "backwards" haven't had a chance to fly it yet. I'll close up the stock prop holes in the wing with tape to restore the wing's lifting ability.

I moved the rx to the rear of the compartment and am going to put a 850 Li pO (lightest I have)
(0.6 oz) to the front. Should balance at stock point more or less. I probably gained 0.2 oz or less, as I have removed the on/off switch and fuse bottom and some tape.

I was going to take off the foam fuse but it really serves a structual function keeping the wing from folding.
