(long as some-one tells me what to do) Motor/ESC is un-marked, so watt calcs difficult.
PS: Will a long ground-run tell/warn me about inevitable overheating doom?
RC-SKILL: I think i am capable of a relatively smooth flight with long sweeping turns & long approach landing... and an abcense of funny stuff.... if i can control the flightline nerves. (even with my TB-20)
L-39 for sale... never flown! LoL
The plane should fly well for you based on the reviews I read. Just keep an eye on the throttle. If you run all out constantly, you will overheat the motor.
HK recommends an upgrade motor of the 2815 or 2615 with 4000KV (3s setup) Center of Gravity is 70-75mm back from the leading edge (not documenting in their manual)
