Does it have any bad tendencies? It seems huge and heavy.... its my biggest plane... im going to maiden it in monday at the ATLRC funfly Does it like to float, does it stall hard? And one last thing... Will it be difficult to land on a 200ft paved Tarmac, and what should I do on approach up until touchdown...

Please answer these questions, for I am just a 13 year old who is nervous to fly it, (and I have a ton of money in it) yet amazed at its beauty!

Plus it's my first tail dragged of sufficient size..... Was that a bad move? I have flown a 70" RV8 like twice and have an 3DHS 40" EPP Edge and a E-Flite UMX Sbach (Without AS3X) both of which I can land perfectly smooth... So should I be OK?

You'll be fine, and the plane has no bad habbits unless you get it too slow then it gets mushy and stalls...same as most planes you listed do. just relax and have fun flying her.

Wow. Thanks. You guys are AWESOME! I will get back to you guys after I fly it.

One problem. The right wing bolt (the plate and the screws that attaches the wing to the plane) won't catch the holes. I know it isn't aligned. But the other one lines up nicely.

Stupid question.

Would it be safe to fly with only one bolt in? I would never do that... Just a last resort LOL

No do not do that. Most likely that hole has excess glue in it. Try to get that screw in w/o the wing then attach wing and secure it.

I agree with V8, DO NOT DO THAT and try and fly with out all 4 wing bolts in it and secured snuggly

remove the red wire from the esc lead going to the rx and leave the red wire alone coming from the bec lead to the rx. you only want one power supply to the rx

So the RED coming from the ESC to the RX I should cut, and leave the red wire on the BEC to the RX alone? I have the BEC going to the Bind/Data port on my AR8000... Is this right? I'm just confused because I have never used a BEC before... All of my other planes have built in BECs.

Spektrum updated their receivers that had issues using the bind port for bec, supposedly caused the plane to go into bind mode. That being said, even though spektrum resolved this problem on newer receivers I would/do connect the bec to any other channel via a y-harness.
