The exact same location as the CG for normal flight. Lots of BS out there about the CG being rear ward for 3D but the proper CG is the proper CG no matter what.

42 amps
4lbs./6oz. thrust
466 watts
169 watts/lb.

With Hobby King APC "style" 14-7 prop. (28 grams)

52 amps
4lbs./11 oz. thrust
577 watts
209 watts/lb.

Battery: Hobby King Turnigy 3S, 2200ma., 35-45C
Unloaded voltage: 4.04 volts/cell
ESC: Thunderbird 54

RTF plane weight: 44oz.

This should yield positive results. I'll find out tomorrow.
On a side note: I added some spoilerons (-5 for now) on the retract switch to help with landing. I can harrier land it, but I am old school and want to land it traditionally, if possible.
I don't think that 130g is as strong as it should be. My 103g was a lot stronger in that plane. I'm not using the 103 right now if you want to try it. The right wing on my 41" EPP Edge ripped off in mid flight a couple of weeks ago. The 103 was in it and made crazy power at it did in the SHP.
I expected more out of it when I installed it in that plane.

Yea, the motor feels a little tight, but I don't know Omega motors. The vertical pull-out is very authoritative now with the 14-7 prop...and I still get 5 min. flight times with mixed flying. Perhaps the Thunderbird esc is holding it back a bit, maybe needs a bit more timing. Even with the 3S/2200 LiPo, the AUW is still 44 oz., so it looks like I'm good to go. Did you ever check the watts or amps when you flew it with the 130 motor? I will say it hovers at least as easily as my 3DHS EPP Edge 540.

I never checked it with the 130, but Im l pretty sure the numbers were better on the 103, than what you show with 130 on a 13x6.5 ..
Glad it hovers as well as the EPP Edge, considering the
Edge has a gyro

The gyro is set to minimum gain but it helps in windy landing, for sure. I should crank it up and see if it helps hovering...It doesn't seem to respond very quickly, though.The 130 seems to be performing as designed, at least on paper. I do see that many owners of 47-48 inch planes prefer the 130 over the 103. Sorry about your wing departure. BTW, I did up the spoilerons to -10, and the landings are slick as can be.

So -10 is downward deflection?

Upwards on Futaba. It's just a number. Seems to be about 2-3 degrees.

Up like a spoiler? Not down like flaps.

Yes. Very effective at keeping the nose down. Makes very nice landings.
