I didn't notice much torque roll at all, a friend launched it after I set about 3/4 power.

Hi Zooplane 66,
Im running a Tp Propower 4S 1800mah,Camprop 7x7,IceLite 50...
I launch it about 3/4 and it just torque's a tad to the left,
then its straight and level.i put the battery back to the wood plate,
no weights added also,and its fine,
Hope this helps you,
DB

so with the above setup it was pulling 1KW with the ESC all dialed in 16Khz and 30* timing very fast on 7X6E about 110-120MPH
on an 8X8E it pulls 100 amps and 1400 watts should be faster :-)
Im going to fly it this weekend ... I also bought an 8X9 sport prop for it which I think will pull the same watts but just not unload as well
take care

Control throws

Found it control throws are

High rate elev 10mm ail 5mm

Low rate elev 5mm ail 2,5mm

I have only listed it again with a title to make it easier for others searching. All I found before was you asking the same question long long ago and not being told.

If you want to have this fly well, I found that you have to meet the CG specs of the manual, which is 50-60 mm behind the leading edge of the wing where it meets the fuze. In order to accomplish that, my 4 cell 1,800 nano-tech battery had to be mounted on the tray above the aileron servo, where half of the battery is on the tray, and the other half hanging in the space where it was supposed to go. I went to Home Depot and bought the industrial strength velcro, and pasted it the length of the tray. It holds the battery with gusto. This makes the plane much more stable. See picture. The canopy goes right on with no mods.
