Thanks Bowerz. I have flown a parkzone stryker and had it modded to the max. Guess this will be similar! I will also do the mods to this after a while. Anyone used the styker motor mount out of interest?

I did have it positioned to the side of the lipo but tis hard to close the hatch. You wouldn't have thought it, but i've nose this one in hard and it was completely fine, the battery hatch popped and the lipo was laying still attatched to the esc outside of the plane, but nothing broken.

I suggest hot glue. epoxy just peeled off evenually after a wing over on launch. I've also run two rods from the back nder the motor mount down through the plane to stop it flexing and strengthen the area around the motor mount. Just sharpened the ends and pushed down through then sealed with hot glue.

Bowzers right hot glue works best but epoxy can work if you pin hole the area your glueing.

You could try reversing the throttle, the esc might think it is wot, even though it is down.

Try trimming the throttle down a couple of clicks.

Just maidended the plane and it didnt fly at all!

1. Is the number on the props supposed to face you from the back of the plane? i have mins so that the numbers face the nose?
2. Is the motor mean to spin clockwise when looking from behind the plane?

Cant think of anything else?

Thanks

Btw the motor mount is crap. Ordered a parkzone styker one to see if that works
