I did the maiden flight on the Kadet today. It flew great. 4000mah 4 cell on motor and 2600 3 cell on lights. The only prop I had on hand was 14X4 wide, for a 4 stroke. It produced adequate power but a real electric prop would be better. The Kadet still flew light and floaty, cruzing at half throttle. She was a bit tail heavy so a 5000 and 3000 battery will be just about right.

The battery access hatch worked OK but if I did it again, I would lengthen the nose area and put a hatch in the bottom of the nose. You could strap the batteries to the hatch and then just put it on.

The ailerons work great. The roll rate is still very slow at the inverted part of a roll. The Kadet is just not made for it. Rudder is very effective.

Landing gear needs to be a bit bigger.

Now for a night maiden!
