Cg

Time for setting the CG and a few final checks.

The manual calls out for setting the initial maiden CG at 108mm behind the leading edge of the wing where it meets the fuselage. This is a good idea.

The manual also gives 120-125mm for the preferred 3D CG range. So after flying many different Scott Stoops 3DHS designs I feel comfortable starting off at 120mm. I don't really recommend this, but I am comfortable flying with AFT CG's. (You should see the CG on my 87" SHP! )

Remember to do a few final checks like making sure the control surfaces are moving in the correct direction. I find this is easiest done at home before the chaos of the maiden piles up in the morning. You know, guys heckling you, threatening to take video of my less than stellar flying... hahah

I will report back tomorrow evening with maiden results and who knows, maybe a video or two...

HAPPY FLYING!
3DHS ROCKS!!!

Just placed an order for one of these myself.

I'm really looking forward to getting an opportunity to fly one of these. I've been flying one of the 103" versions all summer and having an absolute blast with it. Now it's time for some electric fun!!!!

Got a hacker A40-14S, castle ice lite 75 and some 40c 6s 2500mah packs for power.

That's actually a good setup. I flew an 55'' SHP with the same setup and it flew great.

Thanks for the compliment.

Come on out if you can. We would like to see the guy who designed all these planes once and while.

Thick side is forward on mine! I know, she flew so bad that I nominated her top of my list just to see if the ego boost would improve the characteristics.

Jeff also carries them through his store: Plane Fun R/C although I don't see them listed on the site.

The Hyperion packs are great though, all 4 of mine are holding up really well so far.

Ah cool, good to know for future purchases. I've only tried some of the smaller hyperion g3's, but have been wanting to try one for this size plane.

Ended up getting a hyperion duo, so I can charge those puppies real quick now.
