Sounds great, me too. My CG with the P10 is with my 2200mah batteries end sitting on top of the the wing tube. I can fly inverted with barely any input. I think the beauty of this plane is how cool it handles landings, love the landings .

Grits here....

Mine is doing great, although I've been busy lately with a Fun Cub and now finishing up a Polaris XL....

Still flying and loving this plane. The landings are awesome even on grass. Along with my profile Extra, this is my favorite.

I need someone to kick me into finishing mine.

I have everything on hand - just a matter of reeling in the catch, so to speak.

Ok, I just kicked!

This should be a piece of cake for you. I'm building a Assassin wing and the Leader is so much easier!

Hi All ,

Maidened my leader this morning with my 15 size pulso motor, 3000mah lipo, 40esc & 11x7 prop.
Balanced perfectly as per manual with the batt right up to the wing tube.

Flew very well on about 1/2 power. Nice big loops, rolls and touch n goes. All very easy and effortless. Flew for about 8-0 mins than landed her. Nothing even warm.
Going to try a 12x6 or even 7 and see what this does.

Sweet! Sounds like a great maiden. I fly mine with a P-10 mostly 3/4 throttle so mine comes down very warm.

g'day gents, I have my leader sitting in the box . Has anyone put a 25 size motor in running a 4 cell?.
I do have a 10 size with 3cells just waiting to be used, but I'd like to see what she would do with the extra power. Or I could run a the 10 size on 4 cell. Might be have to just have a play around and see what happens, cheers

A size 25 motor would most likely pull the plane and firewall apart over time. Remember this model was designed for a Park 480. Power 10 and a 11x7 and she rips along nicely.

Anything is possible though

Good luck!

I'll proberbly put the power 10 in and the 11by 7 prop for the first few fights. maybe just play around later with other power setups.

As long as the setup has authority in the air, I'll be happy. cheers.

She is no slouch with that setup and has great vertical.
