Everything went very smoothly, no major problems so far ... it's not always that way
The retracts held up well so far, I read horror stories about them but it seems the model is very light and can be landed real slow. So I don't see where the issue is (so far
The airframe is a very good design, very stable (unlike other Hawks) due to that generous washout in the wingtips.
I have to experiment with the CG next weekend to see if I can move it back a bit, it pulls a bit towards the canopy on knife edge.
The fan makes more noise than expected, it's either some body cavity resonace, or that big metal spinner which is still unbalanced.
I had some tape to cover that cavernous esc hole in the back, I now filled it up with cottonballs and a thicker lid, we'll see if that achieves anything.
