What's the biggest battery that will fit in comfortably? Me and another guy are each ordering one of these birds when there back in stock but want to use the Batts in more than just this plane.

don't just put a battery in and assume the CG is correct!! CHECK IT!

It's happened to me many times...apparently a week point,

Seen photos of 4S4000 in plane on this thread....I'll be using both 4000's and 4500 Nano's in mine.

I'm flying mine with twin 4S 2200's running in parallel. So that would be the equivalent of a 4400 I guess. Both batteries are together on their sides. If you try to put them on top of each other label up, you can't fit the canopy back on.

Any other ideas.. I am open to them.
Thanks guys. I have a few 2200's and a cpl of 4000mah Batts so I should be good. Might order a few new ones for some of my other planes that use the same to throw some fresh ones in the mix. Whenever I get mine I know I will probably end up Modding it to fit bigger motors in it so I can run 5s when I run out of the 4s.

Went for maiden flight today, no issues flies real well, and landings are uneventful. I did 4 takeoffs and landings, the plane looks amazing in flight Very scale, the only thing that is a minor problem is my motor brake is on and motors are starting at 1/2 throttle. Does anyone know how to get the brakes off? there is no programming instructions for the ESC'S any input is appreciated on this.....thanks Zagi

Looks like you need to calibrate the ESC to your X-meter's throttle range!

Power up x mitter, throttle trim at zero or a few clicks "down"

Move T Stick to full "up"

Power up ESC

When ESC gives a tone (one or two), move T stick full "down"...ESC will give another tone. You're good to go!

Most ALL ESC's work this way for T Stick range calibration.

Don't know how to get brake off without knowing manufacturer of ESC
