Thats quite a ways forward of what they specify then, this plane of mine came with the larger motor in it and I am going to use my 2200mah batteries in there. I just want to give it the best shot it has on the maiden flight and see what happens. As we have a grass strip I will add larger wheels and beef up the nose gear somewhat with aluminium to try and prevent any problems there.
Its a nice looking model and I would try to keep it like that
I have the 182 version also for some time now and its a little beat up but still flies this one I would like to keep looking good lol.
