Well it has finally happened the way it should, a perfect second flight.
4S 4000Mah
13 x 8 prop
50-55 580kv turnigy motor
100 amp Deluxe ESC
And the CG excactly as the book said.
The taken off was great, the flight was smooth with enough power and the landing was not fast but I still had enough control to bring her in smooth on about 1/3 throttle.
I was really suprised at the glide she has and just by backing off on the power she just settled in and slowed nicely on the grass.
I am soooo happy the she flies that well.

I am going to remove the horizontal stabiliser and replace it with a stiffer one because I don't trust the stock one to be strong enough to pull out of a high speed dive.
