Flite test could have gone with better servos and power setup, ive gone thru 2 motors and esc's. This plane requires alot of elevator control it seems very mushy on the both elevator and nothing from the flaperons. Ive upgraded the elavator linkage to a straight rod and clevis and moved all linkages to the outer hole on the servos and inner on the clevis. Ive also setup flaperons with differential throw because the servo horns will mash into the wing full throw with flaperons fully down. This is a very scale flying plane..its not bad it looks awesome but it does tend to roll on fast takeoffs. I love to fly at the beach..wide open space, one wheeled touch and goes and all kinds of fun. Flite test did not care to go all the way with this model for the price its not what it should be. This 4s setup should wake it up. I had to cut out some of the hatch to fit the 2200 4s battery but its cg is ok..trying the stock prop now and the last motor melted from running 4s. I will try this set up tonight and write more about how it flew with all these minor mods and changes. It does have alot more elevator control and deflection with the straight rod and clevis. I noticed the linkage was bending on the stock set up. Cool plane i really dont want to crash this one or scar it up..it was too expensive and nice lookin to do anything stupid with it.
