If you want. I don't want to step on any toes. The plane is incredable and we were doing rolling circles with the first battery. It feels and flies very natural.

I looked and could not find an official thread. I edited the title of this one to be. I don't care about the "official" title, but it is nice to have everything contained in a common thread. I have flown 4 batteries through her and am more impressed every flight. Flight times are around 8-10 min and the airbreaks are fantastic! The only problem is that you get so confortable, you push the envelope and end up flying it into the ground.....HARD Then you descover how durable it is and fly some more . Be sure to hold the side fuse when removing the battery as my friend found out it will stress out the side fuse gusset if not. 60% low rate and 30 expo is great, but 80% DR is better for me. Perfect managable roll rate.

This thing is great!

I didn't buy the 4-site, however I did buy the motor. I hear it is much longer than the Sukhoi and P-51 motors. I plan on installing it in my Sukhoi as soon as it arrives.

You can also use something flat like a credit card to help pry it loose from the hook and loop material. After putting some packs through it, the material loses holding power.

Since this is now the offical thread, I just got mine today and will be putting it up in our gym tomorrow. Do you think it would be a good idea to tape the leading wing edges for extra strenght?

I dorked mine twice trying to see what it would do. The tape idea is great. I am going to hold off taping mine until i get a crease in the wing. that way I can reinforce it then and not go over old tape. I do tape the perineter on many of my foamys, but they don't weigh an once. Every gram counts and the little bird is accually very durable.

Good luck tomarro friend!

I thought I had read that flight time was limited to 4-5 minutes on the stock lipos.

When you you stop flying them? When the motor starts to pulse or when the motor turns off? I stop when the motor pulses, for me this is only 3 - 4 minutes of flight. I am not sure if I have over discharged the batteries or what but I am not getting 8 minutes of flying like everyone else. Also, do you let the motor cool in between flights or do you just fly non-stop?
