BladeHead-What do you think of the power/performance?
It has power to spare. A smooth increase of throttle during takeoff, and she'll break free of the ground by about 50%. There's plenty of power to spare and get you out of trouble. I plan to hang a FlyCam under the belly once the weather warms up. Performance is really good. It loops and rolls, no problem. Pull back on the power some, bank it and turn with that rudder and she just whips right around. I tried stalling it at altitude...Cut the throttle, pull all the way back on the stick and hold elevator full-up, and she just mushes down--Very little wing drop. As I mentioned previously, you'll do most of your flying at 50% throttle.
