Glad to see you getting one of these. Mine has been really awesome.
First, don't hinge the elevator too tight. I've got 65 degrees of travel and for my flying style I use every bit of it.
Depending on your batteries you might want to pick up a dubro tailwheel with aluminum hub. I'm running 6s 3850 65C packs and came out a bit nose heavy, and the tailwheel makes a big difference in the CG.
One other thing.... if you are using the standard tailwheel, don't trim off the extra wire on the tailwheel wire that the wheel itself spins on. If you do need to go to the Dubro wheel it is wider, and then you need all of that axle that's there to get the wheel and wheel collar on.
If you are using Hi Tec HS5245MG servos you almost have to reprogram the servos or the dead bands can be set anywhere from 1 to 16. The lower the number, the better. At 1 the servos center really solid, but at 16 they are awful. Even up around 5 or 6 you'll be chasing your trims all day.
That and check my blog reports for great set up photos.
