I also think it is very hard to fit a 4S 2200. Don't forget there is still the ESC and I have trouble fitting it all in and I only use a 1500 Mah 3S.

Finally did my 5th flight. I am on leave and I am doing all my flying early in the morning at 8 am before those pesky footballers turn up. I am still learning to fly the airframe. CG is now 70mm from wing root. I am slowly removing the coins.

Transition between power on and glide requires 4 clicks of uptrim. The airframe has a very flat glide but speed must be maintain. It is also maneuverable. I just started trying to use the rudder to turn the plane and found that I had the whole thing the wrong way around!!!!

A 9 inch prop is no stress on the 1000 kv motor. I may go up an inch.

The 4S setup I'm refering to above would only produce max 315 watts max.
