SONIC MODELL / Hype P-51 Miss America 680mm. NEW

So I just purchased this gorgeous bird from Uncle George through RC Groups Classifieds...thanks UG!!

SPECIFICATIONS
Wingspan: 680mm; Length: 570mm; Weight approx.: 260g; Motor: Brushless 2.000kV; Battery: LiPo 7,4V / 450mAh; Scale approx.: 1:15

Been doing a bit of searching and found this link for some info and a few comments...even though in German.

http://www.hype-rc.de/eng/shop/produ...-bl-servo.html

All comments were good, gotta love Google translator. Seems that they were stuffing 1250 mAh and 1300mAh 2S batteries in her and getting good results. One commented the he still needed to toss 5 grams at her to get the CG on. The manual calls for 450-800 mAh 2S...but who runs stock
Flight characteristics were good once launched, and had good slow handling as well as managed some wind.

Here is a MUCH more detailed manual than what came with the model...

And the cliff notes version of the manual...

Hope to get mine together soon... Finishing up another bird first...but will try to post my findings/experience here. Anyone else with this bird, please feel free to chime in and add! Excited to get her airborn!
Cheers!

If only work wasn't in the way, I'd be diving into mine and getting her prepped to take to the skies.

NOTE There are two different CG location methods stated in the various manuals!!!! Check the "Cliff Notes" version that I posted (post #1) as it states a correction in the CG location from the first manuals sent out. Looks like the CG should be 50mm- 55mm measured in from the leading edge of the wing. Some of the manuals state 40mm aft of the leading edge.

Looks like it was just released...I checked online before purchasing from UG and didn't see it...of course I may have missed it...but glad I saw UG's classified ad and acted on it. Looks like he sold out quickly!

So anybody got any hints on these Chinese servo connections...I am guessing red is positive, black is negative and brown is signal? First time I have run across that color combo. Any way to confirm this? Or better question, will I do any damage if brown (Signal?) and Black(-?) are wrong?

I am half thinking of pulling them all and replacing with HS55's.
