Going to try and maiden mine today....
Appreciate all the tips on the CG. I have my Seawind balanced just in front of the spar maybe 1/8" in front. I will move it back if need be but would rather be a little nose heavy on the first toss. Speaking of which, did you guys maiden by ROG, ROW or toss? Water is not really an option for me today and it might be better just to throw it and see what happens rather than try to ROG on the maiden?
Crossed fingers for no wind tonight
Motor: Rewound Emax 2812 (bought from a RCG member) with a GWS 9x5 HD
Servos: Recommended Futaba. These seem to be really nice units.
ESC: CC TB18 (also used from RCG)
Bat: TP PL1320
AUW=19.7oz (changed wires and took other measures to save weight)
My Emax motor is lighter than the GP RimFire but seems very robust. Last night after I got TX programmed, I was flying (sliding) it on the grass in the front yard. My neighbors think I'm nuts. They have no idea
