Do your batteries fit snug? If they're loose they may be popping the hatch up when banked or inverted.

I had to redo the magnets on my Waco hatch, as I have on all of my Dynam Foamies. They are never aligned properly for some reason.

Finished! She's ready to fly. I need to paint the white clevises and do a little touch up, but that can wait until after I fly it this Sunday!

Oh, she has a 700 watt 4240 750kv motor stuffed in on 4 cell.

What sort of battery connectors does the stock ESC use? I'd like to pull the trigger on this one and order batteries at the same time. Thanks guys!

It uses these:

If you buy batteries from nitroplanes or hobbypartz, their batteries come with the correct plug.
