Maybe even go with a 2100 or 2200.
I did my maiden with a 2200 30C and had no issues with no weight added and CG at 70mm.
(You'll eventually want the CG even farther back than 70. But 70 is a safe start point.)
okay. I have some 2200mah bats waiting in the wings.
I'll try it.
What can I expect for flight times with 2200mah bats?
