I love the bedroom hovering.... Just makes me want one of these things even more!!! A question I have about the landing gear/supports... how sturdy/strong are they? For those of you who have flown it, is there any fear of landing and having them tear the foam or working loose? Just curious...

Hey guys. I like the CG set so when you roll inverted the plane remains flying level. Where is that CG coming in at?

Whoever is using 250 mah batteries, where are you installing them? Perhaps you could post a pic.

And for those using the TH power combo, which servos need to be reversed? Thanks.

Ordered mine this morning. Can't wait to get started on the build.

Oops. Edited: Meant 250 mah batteries...

I would think 450 would just be too heavy. They suggest 180-250.

Has anyone tried the 2S 180's that are used on many of the Eflite ultra micros?
I know the connector is different, but I have a bunch that I'd like to use if they would work.

The 450 would be quite a bit heavy, my 450s come in at 22 to 27g. Close to a forth the weight of the plane itself. Got some pro pack 220 going be here plus some tp 250s as well for mine.

Woody look back a few pages pug has a post with a connector to let you use those packs.

Just a few more things on the mini and it's done. Attach the rudder, install tail pushrods, and clean up the electronics, of course the lg as well.
Thanks for the pic!
I'm glad I asked now.

No problem man glad to help.

Taking a break from the mini, was a long day at work. Don't have much left just the sfgs, mount the rx and the pushrod guides and it'll be done. I am thinking about adding some color to the sfgs though. Plain white is pretty boring.

I have 2cell 180mah with JST and hyperion 180's and 240's with Beast connectors. I created a Beast to JST adapter and it works great. Tonight is the gym but one page back is my Video with 180mah with JST. The 180's work great with this model. I had four of them so I plan on sticking to as light as possible.
