OK on a difficulty scale which plane is more of a handful to fly

HE-162 Salamander
SR-71 Blackbird.

both seem to roll on hard turns and both are known to stall...but please sound off on this one..
I have flown the HE-162 but not the SR-71. but it's coming soon.

This was way too funny to watch!

the stall reminds me of the F-86 Sabre dance...but the flat stall I had happen with my HE-162...and I still have no idea why it happened outside of too slow a turn.

I now have the Eagle A3 Super installed on the bird and been trying to get everything to where I like it. The A3 Super is kinda strange in setup compared to the HK V3 Flight stab.. where HK is easy to setup the A3 needs you to pay close attention to the wires and then create a profile and then upload it to the plane. Yes you can program it while in the plane via cable and your computer. pretty cool stuff. 4 modes but I only use 3 Normal and Stable mode2 and then OFF :-)

Question for those on 4s power
What size battery (Mah) and what C rating are you using?

Also did you have to modify the battery box to fit a larger battery..
I am finding out a Turnigy HD 2200 4s 60c will fit 115x35x33 in the box without any changes but I am trying to figure out if I can get a larger battery box and cut into the foam or cut into the foam and slide the batty in so far and still keep the box except modify the box so this idea works? Or get Spinelli 3D print a custom box (hint hint) .. Ideas since I am all ears right now.

my goal is to get a 3000Mah to 4000Mah battery to fit.

Mark
