Hey CK,

Where is the neutral point on a TL50 and on 45" Demon? I've gleaned that TL50 CG placement on your TL50 is ~7.75", correct?

thanks,
tim

thanks buddy. I'm a little slow on the build, just got the top henry's on this morning. Currently with gear and wing completed pre glue I'm at 41oz. Hopefully, that's not too heavy.

I just ordered the TL 50. You guys are having WAY too much fun with these to let me sit by and just watch. Can't wait till it arrives.
Oh, BTW I'm looking for suggestions on batteries. I bought the Medusa 028-40-2500 motor
and have a Castle Creations Phoenix 35A speed control.

I was thinking about a 3S LiPo. Thought this would keep the Current under 35A. I don't need to go over the 100 mph mark on my first fity. What do you think?

I ordered the fity through BMKDesigns.net hope it is the right place. They sent an email saying that it is on it's way.
Excuse my ignorance... how do I go about getting the batteries from you? Do you have a web site?
Right now I am looking just for something fun and aerobatic. It doesn't have to break the sound barrier ...yet. ;-) The Fity-lite sound perfect for me.
Thanks.
Tom
