I would go 65s all around (hs81s definitely work as that's what I used)
Axi 2826/10 w/ 13x7 gives vertical performance.

That will fit, but it might be a tight squeeze unless you remove the tray. Try it and see. I am more concerned that you may not get it to balance..

Will the FP evo 30 3S3200 pack fit?
Will Hs 85bb servos fit in the tail and wing? Or should I go for Hs65's
Thinking about using a Axi 2826/10 with a CFK 13 x 7" prop, will this give vertical performance?
Best starting point for CG?
Hello,

I use a AXI clone from UH with a Aeronaut 13x7, its very strange to mount the axi that the wires are not "rubbed" from the motor. I use two HS81MG in the wings, and a smaller one in the tail, the HS 81 is too big (also too heavy) in the tail, if you want to use it in the tail, you must cut off a lot of the carbon around the mounting hole.
The problem is for every more weight in the tail, you need a lot of more in the nose to compensate. I use a 3s lipo with 2250mah, the weight is about 170gramm, to reach the CG I've insert about 170gramm lead plus a external 5 cell receiver battery with 105 gramm.
The vertical performance ends about 30meters, so I want to try some different props next time. The speed is ok for me at the moment.
Perhaps I try 3 or 4 A123 cells in the future.

Hello Andy,
Finally flew my Siren and it did well with the 7-cell NiMH 2200's you gave me at the CCRC swap meet. Not vertical of course, but flew nicely and for a good while. You guys are all right about the Siren floating indefinitely in ground effect. Got to enable the flaperons next time--or course, the exercise is healthy, walking a half-mile to retrieve the plane...
Cheers,
Dave

Glad it worked well for you! Remember it's spoilerons, not flaperons (ailerons up)..

I know the recommended CG is off, I believe 60-65 is correct but I can't find where I posted it..

Spoilerons and elevator mixing amount?

Andy,

Flew the "Siren" this afternoon (beautiful day) and flipped in spoilerons at 200' and wow! did it pitch down!

Do you have a baseline recommendation about how much up elevator to mix in when you activate spoilerons? Thanks!

Dave

No, but you can start with a couple of mm and then test it up high with your Tx in programming mode so you can adjust it in-flight (it's best to have a helper.)

It sounds, however, that you're using a switch for spoilerons, which implies you've still got throttle on the left stick. If this is the case, I strongly recommend that you move the throttle to a switch - preferably a spring-loaded toggle or button - and use glider programming to have spoilerons on the left stick, so they can be dialed in gradually..

Can anyone tell me if this would be a good combo?

Great Planes Silver Series 45A Brushless ESC 5V/2A BEC

Great Planes Rimfire 35-48-1000 Out-Runner Brushless

FlightPower LiPo 11.1V 1500mAh 25C EVO25 3S Balance
( X2 Parallel ) (so I can use them in my other planes )

Hitec HS-65HB Micro Servos

Also has anyone tried using a 2.4 radio in one of these yet ?

And I forgot. If this is a good combo what would be a good prop size for it. Thanks
