A 7x6 would barely have enough thrust to get the plane off the ground.

You're going from a 10X8 to a 7X6 prop. Unless you can spin that thing 3 to 4 times faster, it's going nowhere. Will it even taxi on lumpy grass?

Build this bad boy up. Rather simple and straight forward. Seems well designed and good quality which we would expect from HH.

Used a orange 6ch and a satellite I had laying around. Downloaded QQ dx8 file and changed a few settings. Set the d/r and the TV to the F-stop using n,1 & 2, going to treat this like my helis and idle up/stunt mode.

I dumped the ec3 extension harness and direct soldered. I removed the optional retract extensions. I always place heat shrink over my connection points where extensions are used. Going to balance the prop tomorrow, I stuck it on my balancer its she's off. Also going to throw some tape on my leading edges tomorrow.

Manual CG OK fellas?

Unfortunately all I have is a 4s 3200 20c laying around :thumbdown:

I need to grab some better packs ASAP!

Probably would put that pretty far toward the front. I have Turnigy 30c 3300's and a 3600 that I use. I usually line them up with the seam between the fuse and the nose.

Be carefull with that thing too close to the garbage can. That could be some bad Karma

Are you (incorrectly) assuming I am landing in grass?

Hey D. You got one of these too huh?
I wound up putting a 4000 ma pack in mine (shoved all the way forward) to get it to balance at the suggested CG.
Maidened it Sunday (no video though) and it flew well at the 560 mm mark. I forgot to switch to low rate on the rudder and a steering correction on landing wound up testing the built in wingtip skids. They work well with no damage done.

That's going to go as far forward as you can. I've got the stock battery full forward and a 65c 3300 5s at the nose attachment point and those balance at the front of the recommended cg.

I haven't really scanned through this thread (just went looking to see if there was one this morning). You can run 5s with the stock esc/motor'prop setup?

Definitely not. I'm running an ICE 100. It pulls 98amps and 1600w continuous on the bench with an APC 9x9e. I'm not sure how long the stock motor will last once the weather warms up.

Finally uploaded my maiden landing. Took a lot of expo out of it for a more linear elevator and every landing since has been great.

I know it's in reverse order, and for some reason the quality sucks, but you can tell from the comments that the up trim should have been put in about 5 clicks to have a smoother take off. As soon as I relaxed the up elevator after rotation, she wanted to go right back down.
