@Joe 1320,
this one could easily be done as a twin, witch would improve the flight envelope, was originally thinking of doing a twin with this one, but decided to see if one 35mm would fly it. like I said earlier the Phantom was quite tail heavy and was wanting to turn left in the maiden vid....so I was holding it in a right hand turn while also pushing the nose down the whole flight, with the batts moved forward and trimmed out for straight and level, it will fly way better, most of the video it was flying at just over 1/2-3/4 throttle, with a constant speed bleed from holding the right hand turn, been raining ever since so havent been able to get out and get a good trimmed out flight...next day or so its "supposed" to be dry...and I'll give it another go.

Joe
