She flys great right out of the box, have some fine tuning as there a bit of high frequency twitching around hover but otherwise very stable.

I'm not sure of the coordinates but I Google mapped it. Here's the link. It's a really nice space for flying and neighbors don't mind at all as long as you keep the flying safe and within the park limits, which we all do anyways. No gas planes though.

Edit: There's really not much pavement space for take offs and landings so it's going to be a hand launch and belly land type of deal. That's why all my jets I bring to 3O have no landing gears on them.

Finally its all done and running. My Mini Quad is alive lol. It took some time to get all the parts and kept on getting side track with other planes but i put it all together today. Thanks Rowe,Lee, and Christian with all your help. It stills needs some fine tuning but happy its done. Yes i did fire it up and like i said needs some tuning. Heres some pics during the building process to the final results
