I finally ordered a receiver-ready plane after the discount and free shipping, totals out to $145. Already have some 1800's ready to go, and a new receiver Can't wait to take 'er up!

I'll put in a review here 'soon as I can.

This is what I had to do to get the c.g. (center of gravity) to where it needs to be. The battery needed to go forward, and so did the velcro strap. All I needed to do was cut two slits for the velcro strap to go through. There's no way I'll take chances with just velcro-to-velcro.

I also hooked up my watt meter and got these readings:

22.9 amps peak @ 75% throttle
249.6 watts peak @ 75% throttle
0.153 amp/hrs.
10.77 Vm

This is with the stock 30amp esc; 9x4.5 sf Electrifly prop, 1800mAh 3s 30c Gforce lipo, and AR6115 Spektrum receiver.

I have not recive mine. But i doubt she will fly like the T28. I have the trojan and that bird can fly at 5mph without stall. For what i have see in the pics the aerodinamics of this millenium are more for sport and remember i have not recive mine still in the way home but the trojan is a TONKA and this millenium is kinda more fragile. The landings looks the same as some other Greate Planes brand like the tower hobby p47 and they are not rock solid as the one in the trojan. I hve 7 years flying rc's and i feel ok buying this but i think is not a good one for begginers. Get the Trojan T28 the parkzone one not the nitroplane or FMS.

I have mine all put together and balanced with stock pack ready to maiden. I wait for a calm day. It's a pretty neat plane. A few hiccups assembling , but nothing even an unbuilder can't handle.

Stock with half full battery pulls 21 amps. It weighs exactly 800 grams.
