Well I'd just like to add my 2 cents to the mix on this one for any future builders of this wing. The build was quick but take your time with the motor mount. I utilized the stock location for the battery and removed foam. The plane CGs perfectly with the Power 400 Zoom motor and a 2000 - 2200 mah pack. I'm working on a solution to help alleviate the flex at the nose of the plane and am thinking some strategic use of tape and or more carbon fiber re-inforcements should help out.
In flight characteristics are sweet on this one and I only needed a few clicks of aileron trim and a few more on elevator. Not a blazing setup on 3s with the Power 400 Zoom but I'd guess it's in the 45mph range flat and level with my tired old packs. Overall it's very stable even at slow speeds .... which makes it easy to land too.
This one is a keeper and I'm hoping to add some FPV gear in the near future.
PS: Thanks for all those who contributed info to this thread. It was a great helpin making the maiden a nice smooth success.
