JovanX, I fully agree with you regarding making mods that change the way a plane flies to suit what you want it to do (within limits)
Regarding the 1800 battery, I'm sure you've all noticed that there are big differences in weight and size of batteries from different manufacturers. I recently bought two 2200 batteries from Hobbiking and was surprised to see how massive they are in comparison to the brand sold at my LHS. it is very possible that you are visualizing a larger battery.
I'll weigh it and post so that it can clarify the matter.
BTW, Although I am fairly experienced I took the RP to the LHS and we checked it with the owner, who is a SAMAA (local equivalent of the AMA) instructor.
I flew my first one stock for about 3 months. Only exception was to apply black stick on film to the bottom of the wing for better visibility, and that was only after a couple of weeks, and a couple of near losses of visual contact. I was very reluctant to do any mods. Didn't switch props until about a year in.
