Sounds like you need the trusty old funjet.

+ 1 on the SkyFun, heaps of space to work with but a bigger motor/ESC makes CG easier to maintain.... but I do want to 'Funjet up' at some point also...

I love the simplicity of the 'Naked Fighter' FPV setup, warning though, they promote low% flight lines

Team Lean and Mean 'The Naked Fighters'

lol

Rips along nicely on a HET 4W15 (2200kV) with 6X4 prop. BSII OSD, DL LRS, good for 20km duration.

a Zippy Flightmax 3S 2200.

I did 3 trips out and back to 3km, and had enough to float around a bit before landing.

I could probably fit a 2700 or a 3000 in there and get 30km, but it would be impossible to launch without a bungee.

Mmm, wait 1 (grabs ruler)

I see a 65mm mark on my wing (as per those build threads). Seems slightly nose heavy at this, which is safe.

PS I do wish I was there to see that

I just noticed I have 4x PMs, can I set it to email me on PM?

I fly mine on 3000mAh 3s, just need to increase the launch angle and apply more power.
