You should have seen the maiden flight!!!...I released the model and it shot straight up, almost into a stall---I gave it full down and she shot straight down almost crashing...Realizing I had a tiger by the tail I managed to get the plane under control...I realized she was tail heavy but I didn't realize how much...When I got it I just did the TLAR method of balancing as it appered to be about 25% back and usually the instructions have a pretty conservative CG...My Sbach was so nose heavy that I had to mack cutouts for the battery like in the V2 Sbach...
I got rid of all my 1S stuff as well....But I do have a Champ on floats that will get a 2S conversion as well as a micro Mustang for 2S...The Mustang has a modified wing where I took an extra wing, cut it apart, and made a symetrical wing...The new colors will be the VooDoo P-51 racer from Callie Graphics...I got the Mossy for a VERY good deal and the twin engines appealed to me...I like this model a LOT!!!...Now, on to weathering the model as shown in one of the Mossy vids from HH on YouTube...
