Changing the motor will usually not change the C/G. The Stryker's C/G point is on the bottom, where you grab it to throw it. There are 2 small circular impressions just left and right of the little rectangle hole in the middle. If you center two fingers in those impressions, it should ballance there. A tiny bit nose heavy is ok. Butch

Thanks mate, I only flew the original stryker a few times and was dissapointed with it and when
I put a lipo init (which was lighter than original mi mh ) she went nose up real quick, caught me by suprised and was thinking I had a sevo problem but I soon realised the CG was thrown out by the lighter battery , Just wanted to be sure before I take it up again with a brushless HET init
Thanks Again

Holy moly 8 of the same stryker , phew , yeah this baby will be my first model for speed plank , I have been flying Heli's and I clocked my Rappy 50 at a touch over 100mph a few weeks back and that was fun for me. When I first took off the Stryker I was all over the place because the silly remote that came with it was a real no brainer I have since adapted my Futaba 9c to it and got it working on the one stick so I am looking forward to me first flight. Ill post you with my outcome , what size lipo are you on and how long is the flight ?

Each Stryker is built different. My Stryker-Lite only weighs 9.1ozs, using a 830mah 2 cell and flys slow enough to land backwards in the wind and or catch it.
My Stryker-Cat Boomer has a 24gram outrunner and 700-900 mah 3 cell batts and will go stright up to a dot in a few seconds. But it also can be caught and only weighs about 10.5-11ozs. Next Stryker project is a Boomer with a walkera brushless on it.
But that's down the road some. Butch

Gday Butch
I flew the stryker today with a brushless motor ( HET TYPHOON ) and she goes like a rocket he he , anyway the motor only just gets warm if that after 6 min of screaming so I thought maybe a bigger prop or pitch ,so could I ask you what prop u use for speed I recond she done at least 80 to 90 mph and up to 100 with a steep decent from good height ,phew I had to paint the fins orange as it was hard to see. Its all good
