also, which is the best suited battery for this model? im hoping to run with a 1500 pack but noticed some are long and skinny, others are more square shaped.

That's also a nice color-scheme, but the original isn't bad at all.
By the way, you are all correct - all the decals are stickers, really thin stuff, but it must be possible to remove it some way if you want it changed.

As for batterys, I have 2 turnigy 1300mah 3c 20c batteries like these: http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=9272
They have to be squeezed into the opening of the battery compartment, but will fit. Size on these ones is 69x35x21 - 35 being the limiting number to get in through the relatively square opening. I'm guessing from trying myself that 79mm is about the limit in lenght if the battery should go in without mods and stand straight up in that box...

Cool, my batteries are 73x24x34. Looks like I will squeeze right in.

Well I couldn't find it at my LHS. They are still moving so it may be boxed up. So I am searching. I found on that you can light and then fly or you can hook up a remote igniter and turn it on once flying

If he would leave some power on and keep the elevator stick pulled back at touchdown he would have much nicer landings instead of "plops!"

I think the kid kept saying crash it so he can go across the way to that water slide. LOL! Looks like Daddy listened.

Here is a link to the smoke system I have found. Its more of a how to review. You can find the smoke at Hobby-Lobby.com and the ignitors and stuff at Tower. I htink this is what I am going to go with. Should be quite cool.

he's already trashed the lg... watch it @ 1.10min, the left gear is all bent up (left wing siting very low compared to right) and the pitt's has trouble taking off straight.
seems like it has to drag the left wheel as it arc's on take-off.
he sure was slapping it onto the ground during landings, pause it @ touch down and look at the angle of his plane LMAO !! its landing nose-in with its arse sticking way up high.
i think he's trying the concrete version of a lawn dart landing

this is a much better video of its capabilities, just ignore the 80's retro music :P
