Ace, I came close to getting the newest Stryker but backed out because it is too fast for it's size but it should not bother a young quick thinker. John235, the DOWN thrust added to G1 was an attempt to kill some lift on the main wing and assist going through the inside loop at vertical. Yesterday while flying the Ga. Goose, I noticed a fast climb with the new motor and some squirming at the rear. It was found to be tail heavy and after moving it's 4AH battery forward about 1", it became rock solid again and with a couple of elevator UP trim clicks, it made a slow smooth landing. the re-balance put it at 10% static margin for a fast nose down approach when no UP trim is added.
