Flew it with the stock motor and prop in calm
winds. Much faster than a PicoStick. With 8 cells its an animal,I only use full throttle for the first 5 seconds of takeoff/climb. Rate of climb must be 300fpm+. Cruises nicely at 1/2 throttle. I dont like it with the 150 pack as it acts like the CG is too far back when it isnt. It does slow up nicely, but its twitchy at all speeds. With 280 packs its nice and stabile, flys on rails.
I put 3/32x1/8 balsa on the back edge of the
landing gear legs to prevent it from bending/kinking. Other than that she lands nicely, either 2 or 3 point.
