Art-Tech Pitts Special

I just finished assembling an Art-Tech Pitts Special purchased from HobbyKing. My first order from the USA warehouse. Shipping was pretty reasonable, and fairly fast. Took about a week to arrive. Plane is pre-decorated EPS foam. It looks nice, but is probably going to be somewhat fragile.

The plane comes w/ servos, motor, esc all installed. Final assembly went pretty quick. No manual at all, and the downloadable Art-Tech PDF manual had no useful info at all! (No CG location, no suggested surface throws!) Luckily, there is a nice thread or two on RCGroups which has all the info if you search through it.

I'm going to use a 3S 1500mAH lipo pack to fly. With the stock prop (10x4.7" GWS style) it pulls about 10A. Might try a 10x8" GWS if this is not enough speed for me. Weighs 1lb 4oz. (20oz).
