Where did you guys put your esc? The stock one came as though it was to be mounted between the two main wing mounting post, but that won't work because it would be in the way of the aileron servo. I pushed the esc as far forward as I could coiling the wires up behind the motor. Seems to be ok but I have tightened the main wing screws as tight as I can get them and I still get a very slight crack between the very top of the wing and the fuse.

Moray vs rare bear

Does anyone own both the moray and hobbykings funfighter Rare bear, and tell me which you might like over the other? I own a rare bear and only changes I made was apc 6x4 prop and adding a turnigy plush 30a esc. I fly it with stock motor and servos on a zippy compact 4s 1300

at the weight u are flying the bear at there is no comparison unless u went to a 3000 4 cell in the moray. the wing loading numbers are off the chart on your bear compared to a stock weight moray. dont get me wrong , there is nothing wrong w/ your bear setup but the stock weight moray will seem like a glider by comparison.

have u ever flown the bear on the stock prop and a 850/4's ? this will be much a closer setup to the moray, although the bear would still be heavier wing loading wise and faster.

Today i got my Nano 6s after fitting it in the plane there is no way that that it's possible to get the COG right even with the stock motor fitted in it and esc behind the lipo
I really don't see how ollian managed to get the cog right with that big heli motor in front of it and that 100Amp esc in the nose
He must have a huge amount of led in the tail

Haha! Its perfect I added 28g of lead in the back to make it good! I really don't notice the lead at all!. U can lunch the thing on less then 1/4 T. I am putting my mini cam on the moray this weekend. Check out my funfighter doing 124mph

Hi

Mine is almost ready to go... Can someone post some reasonable throws... I can't see any in the manual.

Not sure about the throws but you can start taming it down by setting some expo. I like to start with 70% expo and go from there.

Ready for maiden....

As soon as weather permits..

Looks like a well thought little kit, nicely build and rather streamlined at the exception of the very thick trailing edges at wing and stab.



Did my usual foamy treatment: 2 to 4 coats of WBPU



Changed the stock prop for an Aeronaut 7x7, much lighter that allows to get correct CG without lead at the tail, despite using 40C 1800 mah 4S. This prop also draws about 10% more amps but should be faster than stock.

Wonder why they opened the cone, since there is no opening in the backplate to get the air to the motor....



I also strealined the wing bottom, using tape to cover all slots and protect leading edge. Wing bottom is now smooth as silk ...



I re-located the clevis at the ailerons servos arms 2 holes closer to the center, that should help taming the throws and increase the precision and torque of the linkage.

Very bad weather forecast, I might have to wait a lot before maiden....
