Here is the 60amp hifie ESC with big BEC, forget how bid
My thought was to keep weight on the right side to counter torque.
But it can be seen the battery gets shoved left and defeats that idea.
Lateral CG is fine.

Crud some update must have set in.
I will have to figure out how to post photos yet again

It tells me my files are invalid.
Using a HTC 1???

Maiden went well on a cold frosty morning in the uk. 1 click left aileron and 2 down on elevator and was like on rails.
Had 30% expo on ailerons/elevator and 50% on rudder, didn't try the flaps as fingers were going numb after 10mins flying.
cg was perfect with the 5000mah lipo. 1/2 throttle on the 13x8 saw vertical until out of site and pulling hard. Got the impression the set up hauls it around with out effort.

Landings were .......easy , very easy. liner her up , chop the throttle and glide in.
Excellent winter hack that cost peanuts to put in the air and will do anything you tell it to.

Heh, nice maiden report, congrats At least you had some sun it seems, here it has been raining cats and dogs for two days and the forecast looks bleak.

Good News Andy!
Vertical at half T

I some times come in dead stick, other times a near harrier.
Been working on that , with the SSX & 3D Spirit it is sometimes in my grasp.

Congratulations!
Yes peanuts in relitive terms.
Have fun! Chris

Great report Andy,

As I've dived deeper and deeper into a multi-rotor addiction my planes collection has been dwindling. Except this one. This baby stays with me. I take it out all the time. In fact. I may this afternoon.

Enjoy. It's a great plane.
