Thanks! I trimmed it out, and on high rates, I'm somehow getting 60 degrees of elevator, both up and down. Yippee! Hopefully I won't have any blowback issues out of the HS225. The rudder was throwing enough to travel into the elevator about 1/4," so I had to back that off a bit.

I thought one of you guys might be interested, but tomorrow morning I am putting a motor up for sale that would fit pretty good in the 57:

Just got back from the maiden. HOLY MOTHER OF SPEED!!
This thing is insanely fast. I have video uploading now. I knew it would be somewhat overpowered, but nothing to this degree. Anyway, it flies like a dream! Totally happy, and haven't even really got it dialed in yet. The CG is a bit of an issue, as I'm using a "big block" motor, but I think once I get a heavier ele servo, it'll be about spot-on. I had very little trimming to do in the air, and did I mention this thing is FAST?
Also, I got a 9 minute flight out of a pair of 3s 2200s. Didn't really mean to go that long, but my approaches weren't cooperating, and I didn't wanna scrape it up on the first landing.

How many mah's did you put back in? I only get around 6 minutes on my 4s 3800 before they are at 80%, and they contain more total energy than your packs (3800mah x 4s = 15200 total mah / 2200mah x 6s = 13200 total mah). You must have been getting close!

I didn't look at the values when I recharged them, but it didn't take any more time than normal to charge them back up. I'd say I was good for another 30 seconds at least...

Recorded in 1080p- I had the lens on my camera turned for a horizontal mount on my motorcycle, and I forgot to change it back to vertical, so I had to use an editor to rotate the video 90 degrees. Hence the narrow FOV.

The Re, Re, Re, Re, Re, Re, Re Maiden went well!

Flew all three packs. This plane is Hot!!!

Had some trimming to do and figured out later, my nose must be a little more heavier, was diving pretty good, more than I want. thought it was Thrust Angles, cause those got altered by the firewall punch. Tried to washer it back to normal.

Will just move the pack back another 1/2" should do it.

I only have a few flights on my SC. I can do knife edge spins all day long on my other planes, but I can't get the SC to do it. Looks like too much rudder, is there such a thing? Thanks and when I get my 65" Viper up how's it tumble and spin?
