No debate....all good. Set up well, she does fly easily. I fly almost exclusively in Stab mode with RVOSD and easy to avoid high adventure with airspeed. 5050 with a 15x8 xoar on 6S10000 gives you plenty of airspeed. My biggest issue is it does fly like a 747 and is not my first choice for proximity flying. I get aggressive with my Zephyrs but the Titan is really only good for lumbering around. I guess you can fly proximity with this but I've said it before, this is not the plane you want to try and get out of the top of a 100ft pine tree.

That's really the best word for it. I couldn't seem to put my finger on it before but I like that word to describe how it cruises.

I've done some proximity flying with it but not too much. I mostly end up being the object to follow during formation flying.

Great! Thank you both for the flying quality descriptions. A large and lumbering aircraft is exactly what I wanted - I'll be flying around in the flat and open farmland of Ohio.

I'll still plan on getting my other aircraft flighworthy to build up some flight time experience , but this lessens my anxiety

I cut out a side hatch for my pixhawk. you can just stuff the cut out foam back in and put tape over it OR,what i did was made a cover to place over the cut out.Access is now easy to get to my pixhawk.
