Good luck! Be sure to order some Hyperion batteries for that setup. She really comes alive with a quality, conservatively-rated 25c battery - like the Hyperion G3 CX 180 or 240 mAh cells.

I flew about 20 packs through mine today. She's even stronger, now. Sustained inside and outside knife-edge circles are now possible at ~80% throttle! On the 240 mAh Hyperion, the vertical is still strong @ 7 minutes into the flight, and @ 10 minutes into the flight, she will hover @ 100% throttle.

On the Hyperion 180, she really screams! Flight-time is shorter; however the increased performance due to the reduced AUW is very noticeable.
