Forgot to check CG so had to cut short the flight
Looks like it flies great. CG looks fine.

What you dont see is that I was pulling the elevator stick 3/4 backs just to keep her leveled. At this point when this video was done I was not sure if I had the right battery for this EDF so I used one of my own lipos for my boat 11.1v 2100mah. Its longer but weights the same but what I fail to do was check CG. I simply shoved the pack all the way in the front of the nose. She now fly's better.

Hi Stephane,
Do you think the intakes could withstand landing on grass without the wheels? There is no other option where I live in Hong Kong as I do not have a car.

The intakes have a plastic border in the front, so that should be ok for careful grass landings. The canards are not vert strudy, so if they catch some long grass, they will break. Also, the V between the wing and the wing tips catches grass with laying the plane there. You may want to leave the wingtips off.

OK marcelo.
I think this plane is a little fragile for the rough area we have available in near my home in Hong Kong.
Thanks for the feedback.

Wow that is one good looking model! But I realy don't like the plain silver paint sceme. What kind of paint would you need in order to respray it? Or would it eat the foam away?

I recently repainted mine so I could see it better in the sky and used foam safe paint. I will post pics tonight.

Check and see if you transmitter is charged and or your ESC is fully connected to the receiver and then try it again.

Could someone confirm the dimensions for me? I've seen pictures of it and it looks much smaller than the quoted dimensions.

Thanks.

Second, the model is too small; I would like to see a model that is at least capable of using a 70mm fan and 2100-2200 3S lipo.

Maybe I'm in the minority and of course sales figures don't lie, but this is my vote and I hope this input will trickle up to companies like Art Tech instead of fall on deaf ears. I'm guessing these flashy but mediocre performing RTF packages sell briskly and that's why new ones continue to be introduced to the market almost monthly now.
