Flight impressions

- The motor has enough power for a scale flight, but not much more. I plan to try a 9050 when I get them. This will push the motor/ESC closer to the limit, but should still be ok. Long-term, I may replace the motor with a 150-180Wt low-kv motor from UH turning a scale prop.
- If you want to try keeping the model light, Hextronic 24g blue wonder is a better motor, and a much better deal.
- The model ended up somewhat tail-heavy. I guess I'll need to move the battery pretty much into the cowl. That did limit my flight time, as I didn't want to risk losing the plane.
- To the extent I tested them, the controls were responsive, and the model flew well - none of the scale behavior at lower speeds.
