Seems to work just fine.
You wrote that you don't experience the ballooning that some report?
CG as per manual or more in front?
PS: You got a rather big lipo in there, I hope to balance mine with a smaller battery...

cheater open and no cheaters on top. Will open them up soon though to get some more air to the fan.

Balooning only appears with cg a few mm further back and it's vicious.
I use a cg of 60-62mm from wing leading edge.
Easy to do with the heavy (500gr) batteries.
You may have noticed that on take-off I used most of the runway. Had to arm restle it off the ground....

Last week is used a 3300mah battery and forgot to check the cg.
On landing, I cut throttle a bit too soon and it balloned about 2 meters up, stalled and fell on all 3 gears hard. Only minor damage to the from LG mount. Could easily have been much worse.
