So if you can get 200 watts out of any 10 grams -20 grams motor. You should beable to cruz about 30-50mph.
But I mounted the other motor and it weighs in at 32 grams. which means I had to add anothe 2 oz to the nose to blance it out.
The CG point is 4" dead on!
I had it at 4.25" it would stall alot!
@ 4" it is smooth and stable.
Looking forward to getting out side and running a camera on it!
Just had to find the CG first before I start adding stuff to it.

Thank s for reading.
Cool! I've been having a ball with this little sucker... HK wingwing
It's about 400g RTF with UHF and osd.
Running a axi 2204-54 on 6x5 and it pulls 7A max.
15 min flights on a 1300 3s
Max speed is about 85km/h and will cruise at 40-50km at 3A.

I'll be keen to try all the gear in a mini-Z as my Z2 needs a little bro
