throws were at maximum with 50% expo if I remember right. at full power its fast but at 1/3 throttle it was falling from the sky. basically I was performing (what I thought it was) a controlled stall/spin but it would not recover and nosedived into the ground.
aircraft fuselage is now in two pieces, wings intact and could be mended but I'm not going to bother as I felt nothing as it crashed. I did made some pics the day before I crashed it so will update with actual flying weights
Why was yours 1.2kgs ??????
Mine ready to take battery is 524gr ... add a 4S 1600 Zippy Compact now 698gr .. a 3S 2200 Turnigy blue gives 716gr - WITH WHEELS and the extra few gr's for the Pilot figure .......... a long way of 1.2kg !!
