Weight

What is the weight of your PVF aircraft? I do not balance yet to weigh my own but I find it very heavy. I have a radian with a battery of 3000mah and a gopro also a 900 mhz 500mw video system and a camera 480 lines also I have a second battery of 500mah for the video.

Wow and this will fly! impressive!

PVF?
Forget the weight! Just throw @ full power and get ready to pull up

Things to look out for are high stall speeds, wings folding & fast landings - take it easy and you should be fine.

I have flown very heavy planes before and found too much weight really is a balancing act.

really heavy planes need the esc and motor to climb properly, so watch out with your esc and motor if you climb heavy

3000 mah is a small battery

the price you will really pay is in aerodynamics inefficiencies
