Thumbs up on the successful flight. Hope to do mine this Saturday. I have 3 batteries lined up. Two are 3S 3000 at 30-40c discharge and one 3S 3300,30-40c discharge. Should be alright. Was yours balanced at 5mm behind the middle wing line?

thanks, ming.... i'm using one of my own battery/esc plugs.

my jet was slightly nose-heavy from the balance point (yes, 5mm behind the center panel line). i think i'll keep flying it that way. the model flew very well, still had plenty of elevator during landing, etc.

Check my math but,

model has 1350mm wingspan

Full Size wing span is 64.8m = 64800mm

64800/1350=48

I got me decals from Callie. Just gave her the length of the fuse and a picture of what I wanted. Had the decals at my house in 4 days and they fit perfect!

That's the connectors on the battery and ESC. Many different kinds out there.

Hey Ming:
Just went to the Windrider website and see you have my plane pictured. That's awesome. Made my day. Cool! I take that as an extreme compliment! Looking forward to that 747!
