i have managed to have about an hours flying time with mine now

it balances right at the rear of the CG range with the 4x4.7s and 450mAh 2s lipo. It flys with neutral stability at this. I might put a couple of grams in the nose just to smooth her out a little.

first flights are encouraging, getting around 1min30s flights on a 3/4 power launch. (I have quite a strong launch, so like to work up to 100% slowly in case the model shows any sign of not taking it.)

One thing that is really noticable is how much authority the rudder has. I am sure this is because the wing tips are so light there is no real inertia to overcome with a yaw.

I had a couple of 3 min flights with it in its first session, so its looking encouraging.
