Maiden went great. I went flying at the field today and a friend at a DX7. Worked great. I tried it with no expo and had no problems. But I dialed in 30-40 and it flew nicely. This is straight out of the box, flying on a 370 nanotech 3 cell from hobby king. It had ok power and decent flight time to make me happy. I tried my friends Twisted Hobby Pack 450 mah 3 cell and it really brought the plane to life.

Few things I def have to change! And they have been mentioned on here...

NEW PROP...Surprised Horizon did not supply a better prop. It flies it nice, but at full throttle straight pass it sounds awful.

New Servo Arms. Not enough throw for the elevator or rudder. The ailerons are ballistic though! lol!!!

As for the motor the motor has plenty of power. There is no need to change that unless I guess you want to make it lighter and fly it indoors.

The plane hovers nicely. Just needs more elevator throw. Tumbles ok. (Same thing more elevator throw) I need to do away with the Y on the aileron so I can add Ail Diff. It needs it badly!

My Futaba RX is suppose to be here Friday or Saturday. So once I get that RX in I will set the plane up to my liking.

Overall I am pleased with it considering how small it it. Usually planes this size dont fly this well! Full Fuse planes at least!

I busted the firewall loose again and now added about a ounce more weight but the good news on that is now even with my 370 batts i can get perfect CG

Ah a man after my own heart. We need decals now that say" FLY NAKED !" Checked tracking on my batteries earlier and 2 are in IL and 2 just cleared customs in Hong Kong. Getting a bit excited. Wish I had ordered the batteries last week but hadn't decided between the Edge and the new SBach .

Just set my elevator and rudder up, with Hitec arms, and CF pushrods! I have so much rudder throw I needed to trim the elevators!

I just used the longest arm that comes with HS- 35,45,55's, and cut it down to the smallest hole.
