Maidened mine on Friday. I used a 480 and had to add a small amount of lead to the tail for balance with an 1800-3S battery.
Hope to fly it again with the newer c/g set up this week. Ran into one small issue with the spinner but just need to find the correct size nut for the threaded prop adapter on my motor. the tapered cone wont fit under the spinner.
I really like this plane so far and it looks great in the air

Hey Jay I have been flying the &^@# out of mine for the last several months. I used an NTM Propdrive 3530:

I was able to use battery placement to get cg right. I think I am running a 10X6 prop. Can't quite remember. Very fun!

Has anyone had any luck removing the wrinkles?
I'm building mine right now, the wrinkles ironed out of the white film but not the red film. I'm tempted to recover the nose area.

No, that red monocote is ignorant. I worked and worked but wasn't able to get them out....

Has any put an E-flight Park 480 1020 KV on this plane? If so how did you handle the misalign mounting hole.
