Yuki/Sonic Modell LS8-18

I recently purchased one of these. I bought it because it looked beautiful and no doubt would be easy to fly.

Buddy at the hobby shop pointed me toward a Gens Ace 3S 1300 mah battey for it since it could be flown with either 2 or 3S. He figured with 3S she should climb steeply.

I assembled it as per the instructions. It goes together very quickly and easily. The manufacturer has marked the underside of the wings where the CofG should be.

I found that with the 1300 mah battery, the compartment was pretty cramped and the aircraft seemed to balance a little nose heavy. I tried a 2S 1000 mah battery and found it solved both the space and the weight problems.

I also took the time to add fibreglass re-inforced tape to the wing leading edges at the tips, and the fuselage underside where they are likely to come in contact with the ground on a normal landing.

I have no experience with this model and can find little on the net or here on RC Groups.

Do any of you have experience with it that you can share?

Cheers!
