Love the sound of the twin and the power looks really good
what are your thoughts of the 240mah vs the 500-600mah packs
of and how stable that little plane looks in FPV
Yeah, the Mossie is a great little plane in calm wx. It's the only 1s UM that I still fly. However, she does get bounced around pretty good in turbulence - thanks to the undercambered wing.

Regarding batts - I prefer the Hyperion 550 mQX/120SR battery for outdoor flying & the Hyp 240 for indoor flying. The CG is a bit aft with the 240, but that's actually good for indoors. With a neutral or slightly aft CG, stall speed is lower, the plane is more maneuverable, takeoffs are shorter, and landings are slower. However, that also makes the plane quite sensitive to turbulence outdoors. The 550 solves the problem without adding dead-weight, which is the mortal enemy of micro-flight.
