Flew mine today. Not long enough for anything conclusive but did see improvement over the Zoom 370. Not day and night... but better. Windy, cold and out of trim. Too ugly a day to make more flight time and prop changes. Weight was so close to the Zoom 370 I didn't need any change of weight for CG. I only tried the 6x3 prop and notice some torque roll but not any more than the 370 has with the 6x4. I have some video but have not decided if it's worth posting... will see about that later. I crashed it twice due to numb thumbs and snow blindness
If it wasn't in the 20's here I might have something better to report
Found out that hot glue on the elevon horns breaks loose at cold temps too. Second crash left me with both control horns loose. Looks like a good idea to trim the laminate off around the horns before gluing them. Otherwise, the glue will release from the laminate. If you are waiting to hear something more before ordering.. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Zoom 400. Should be a kick butt motor on this wing. The 370 is fine but maxed out with the 6x4 prop.
WATTS was less than the 370 but more prop testing needed... Speed was at least as fast as the 370 and launch was easy at half throttle.
