I'm gonna fly without SFG's for a while and see what I think but so far I'd say the most notable difference is that it require heavier stick inputs in slow rolling harriers. With the SFG's on it will really give you some confidence in those low slow rollers.

But yea, KE is still perfect without them.
I should just try it with the SFGs sometime. I can't make this ke spin very well. But then the only plane that I could easily KE spin was the edge 48 EXP with SFGs

Have you tried a tumble entry? This plane seems to like some right aileron for a good KE spin.

Mine likes a tumble entry as well. Although, mine snaps out if I give right aileron. A touch of left aileron, and it'll spin like a fool.

I managed a sequence of 4 rolls in harrier on the 57 today, a first for me!

Nope. Do you use full throws?

Can you list the stick inputs step by step ?

Full throws...

Vertical upline
Tumble - right stick upper right corner, left stick lower left corner
Catch the plane in the proper orientation. Wait for it to get parallel with nose pointing right.
Then full left rudder and high throttle (at first... You can back off later but you need some throttle to "catch the plane") and right stick at 12 o'clock.
From here you will need to hold full down elevator and then find the sweet spot for ailerons. Some planes like a little right aileron, some need left and some like neutral ailerons.

Timing is key while catching the plane. Let me know how this works for you. My explanation probably isn't great so if you have questions just ask.

Fiberglass x mount option. It lightens the motor that way.

I went with the standard mount on my latest build and really like it. It allows me to put the batteries a little further back in the tray which makes it a heck of a lot easier to strap them in. And I haven't noticed any weight penalty at all with this setup.

The only issue I ran into was I had to use two washers on each mount hole to pull the motor off the firewall just a hair so that the retaining collar wouldn't rub.
