Blitzrcworks 50mm mini Viper

Has anyone had experience with this model. I followed the manual regarding GC location and ended up with an extremely nose-heavy flight. Short flight!
When setting up I questioned the location but went with it. Big mistake.

Just curious if anyone else has this model

I got mine last year at Toledo, it was the only one at the show and was able to get the display from Andrew of Kondor Hobbies. He was to be the distributor but then other things happen and then Graupner released it.
Anyway I bought some 3s packs and flew it with the stock CG. Yea I moved it back some and I didn't use the 2-axis gyro either. Flys fine and I up'd the ma to 1300 and clear coated the whole plane to keep what "decals" are left. There is a thread from last year right after Toledo that I posted info and pics.

I should have gone with my gut feeling rather than the incorrect GC location in the manual.

Beyond repair. Went straight down. I have the larger Viper and it is a great flyer as well as a great sound with the 90 mm fan.

Sorry to hear about that. It does make for a great have in the car ready to fly anytime type of plane. That was one of the reasons I bought it.
