Nice job! Hope to see it in the air again. How was the CG? What size of battery are you flying with? Motors, ESC specs? Looks like sort of a hard model to launch. Would be good to have a friend toss in the air I guess.

The ERJ 135/145 family would be an easy addition because they basically sport the same tail and same nose.

Very excited to see this progress.

Thanks JD! She weighs 1.75 pounds flying

She uses one 11.1 volt lipo 30c 1300mah and 2 30amp hobbywing esc's.

Hit the trees like a bullit & came out with a dent or two & a popped off nose.

DD, it looked that CG was off big time, she seemed tail heavy as she dangled on her tail right pass wing wiggle after the launch, rest she flew on power curve n thats why went too far out while you were trying get her back, she hit the trees....

Power wise looked pretty good, so check her CG plus she needs more ground speed for take off as she would be high on wing loading for her size n weight...
