I got the AVA in the air today with the 3 cell A123 pack and 16-10 prop.

Went great. No problems.

The A123 will go about 5 full power climbs.

Ended up adding a little lead under the canopy to balance the plane further forward. It balances fine with the 4 cell pack, but at the moment, I would rather have a little lead and not worry about anything burning out until I learn more about the plane.

Speaking of learning more.

The split spoilers don't need much compensation. I have about 14% up elevator mixed in.
They do work well to slow the plane on approach and don't drop it like a stone.
