Definitely get the 3amp BEC esc and replace the prop adapter with a 3mm collet style that tightens onto the shaft as those black bands perish eventually. You can live with the servos though they don't center and means constant trim changing every flight. I think when I rebuild mine I will replace the PNF servos but have served me OK for 18 mths.

I never had an issue with the stock ESC. I have used APC 6x4 and 5x5 and no issues. Also i never had issues with the inbuilt 2amp BEC and the servos.

Bend the control surfaces up and down to get them more flexible. Maybe a little bit of oil into the push rod tubes.

I am using the stock prop saver, a GWS 5043 prop and a 1300mAh 3S batt.
Helps reducing weight. 549 gramms AUW.

In my opinion the 2200mAh batt and a additional prop adapter makes this plane too heavy. It works, but i think lighter is better. Lighter plane is better for landing and launching.

Also i have glued the wings in with UHU POR. Only a little drop at front and back edge of the wing. This is enough to hold the wings in place and if needed you can remove the wings easily.
