Hi Teo,

a couple of thoughts to your questions:

I fly mine on 3cell set-up and a 13x6.5 Prop. Firstly, my AUW is about 48oz. it seems the lighter this plane is the better it wants to fly. Secondly, the 13x6.5 prop gave me a little more consistant speed up / down / rolling figures etc. as you have found the plane can get pretty fast. for me flying on 4cells and 12x6 prop the plane was just a rocket. I like it much better flying a tad slower with more consistant throttle. I fly mine for 8 minutes on 3000mah batteries.

like always, I work hard on thrust angles and balance when I set-up a plane. it took a few fllights to finally work in the up/dwn right/left motor angle. Finally my balance is what I would call very neutral. it will hold an inverted 45 upline with little to no input (but not climb). it feels a tad sensitive at first but I found needed to be able to fly the rolling looping portions in FAI. At this CG I do have some pitch to the belly on rudder imput so I do have little Rud-Ele mixing programmed in as well as just a tad of Rud-Ail mixing to overcome a slight roll coupling.

I can get you more precise deflections and then %'s if you need

I love this little plane and now that we are done flying the big birds for the year this plane is back in the van as an everyday flyer.
