Awesome I always worry about silver on a cloudy day. By the sounds of it not such an issue!

i had heard that about silver as well. my first silver flight was on a bit of a overcast day as well. once it gets a bit away it looks dark grey, black like any other color. i did not feel it an issue. i was very comfortable with her. it was my test for my big twin balsa bird i just covered in brushed aluminum ultra coat. was a bit concerned. not really anymore.

Any point in putting a thrust tube on the 4s stock power system? Looks like an easy install after already together anyway

I put 4 Stingers together so my friends and I could chase each other around. They were all very close to the same speed. One day mine blew the thrust tube out and I couldn't keep up any more. It's probably not that noticeable if you fly by yourself, but if you have another one to compare it to, it does make a difference. Flight time was a little less too because I used more power all the time.
