Afraid - You don't really get slow-fly EDF's because they rely on airspeed for airflow over the control surfaces; conventional prop-driven aircraft have the flow of air from their prop so are much better handlers at low speeds. End line is you gotta keep reasonable airspeed with an EDF to keep controls responsive.

My advice is just make sure the CG is ok then launch at 80%+ throttle and try and stay level until some speed builds up. Keep maneuvers gentle until you get some altitude and get sued to how it handles. You should do well with the pushers, let us know how you go!

Nice, then the Flightmax's I ordered should fit, at 40 x 20 x 15mm. Thats a bit of a relief. Always wondered why HK doesn't always give battery compartment dimensions.

Thats one thing about 'economies of scale' - the servos and motors might get more expensive as you go smaller but the batteries sure don't!
