Ewo,
What prop are you using with the J250 and what is your current draw? Thanks.

Im using a 3x3 prop, and a 3 cell 340 lipo
I havent a clue what the draw is but im shure someone does

I have used this setup for the last month or so on different birds with the same motor, it shows no signs of wear.... strong as ever

you are welcome

If you are not familiar with balancing one of these flying fuse airplanes heres a little trick.

without cutting out the controll surfaces
just cut out the top and side view and slide togeather , you have an airplane at this point.

Tape a quarter on the nose 3 or 4 inches from the front tip
Give it a toss, if it glides well then stick a small wire through the fuse and hold it up by the wire . if the tail hangs down ,move the wire back a bit about 1/4" at a time till the frame hangs levell .Mark this spot . Actuall cg will be 1/4 to 1/2" in front of this mark
you need to adjust the cg to the way you want to fly

Have fun with the plane , I have built alot of the F16's and all fly verry well

This is just the first time i have tried with the J250
It flys verry well too

I have to say you can hook up the elevators anyway you want

I prefer to use full floating elevators . But thats just what i like here are a few pictures of the newest version i started friday before i left for the camp

And i have a video
I am not proud of it but im going to post it anyways

ever seen an F16 crash tail first???????

Yesterday was much better (no wind at all and it flew great)
But i didnt get a video of that

After the last one broke the tail off i thought a little stiffening would be in order

NEVER crash tail first
