From here, you can't even tell she's had a hard life!
Really good job bringing that life back to her; this plane is one that deserves that second shot.
The more you fly it, the more you're going to want to. It really is that good - flight envelope goes (as you observed) from walking to straight-up vertical acceleration with insane maneuvers in between. Don't know the motor you have in it, but the stock motors are excellent and will take a 4s battery without a whimper. THEN the fun really begins.
Nice work, HnR! Keep that sweet little ol' sttiP rockin'!
