Well I had a one hour window to maiden this thing yesterday... and it aligned perfectly with an hour of constant rain. Anyways, I should be able to maiden next weekend. I have a feeling I'll be going to 3s pretty soon as it doesn't feel like it's generating enough thrust on 2s to come close to hovering when I simulate a hand launch in my parking garage. I don't know if it's reasonable to expect that I can hover something with this weight on 2s Mine is weighs in at about 168g without battery, it actually feels heavy, but I'm used to only flying UMX stuff. I've got good throw on the aileron and rudder control surfaces, but for some reason the elevator throw seems lacking, despite full servo travel and no pushrod flex, I'll likely tinker with this after the maiden. I don't think it has to do with the disk hinges as they seem to be nice and loose.
