Very nice! You have room in there for 2 3300 4S packs?! I read the thread fully and it seemed xtra fab was needed just to get it flyable? Don't get me wrong I enjoy the build as much as flying, but most of my EDF building is with foamies? I have 2 fiberglass jet and both were pretty strait forward outta the box. But, man thoses flights w/yours looked GREAT!

I'm using 2 2s packs for 4s total. Using batteries larger than 3300mAh will require lead in the tail to ballanes.

Nice job! Is that on 5s?

I've almost perfected my hand launches but my 4s setup is only 1300g.
The 163 handles really well at high speeds. I never did test my speed but I think it was around 125.

Cool vids!! I'm hoping to pull my lightly crashed ME off the shelf for repairs while the weather is too cold to fly. Need to do a little fiberglass work.
