Mistakes, we all make them. Anyone want a brushed motor ESC?

I recently received my bixler an i'm desperate to get her up in the air, in my rush i have purchased a zippy 2200 2S 7.4v lipo

will that be sufficient?

I thought they were 11.1v?
Yes, 11.1 volts for 3S and that's what you should be using. Definitely underpowered with 2S but you might be able to cruise around, gently. You'll need a good hard throw when launching to get up speed.

i'm guessing - remove washers from nose, shove the lipo as far forwards as i can an see how she balances out.
If the battery is still too light, Velcro a washer on to the battery at the front end.

i'm going to reinforce the wings with cf rod inside the original tube too. i need the wings to be removable
If you look at my Blog (clip on the name on the left) it shows one way of holding the wings in place. Rod in the tube sounds like what you need. Even if the rod was slightly loose it should still do the job.

I've only ever flown 3ch planes before
So you just turn using the ailerons and elevator instead of the rudder. Virtually 3Ch flying.
