CG @ 10.5 inches, that's 26.6cm. wasn't the CG @ 23.8cm? I'm struggling to get my Z2 in the air, finished the build about a week ago. Have managed to get 4 launches, broken prop on 2 of them.

I have the CG @ 23.8cm from the nose, 2 times i've launched it over the head with one arm holding the nose, with a few mm up flex. It went down 3m away Will get a friend to throw it next time.

I'm using the ritewing motor and esc, 2x 4s 3300. And it weighs in @ 3.1kg
