Just discovered this post. That's way more foam than I cut out. I only needed to removed th side bits where the fan is mounted and 2 inches sinces the shroud is longer than stock. It definitely has more thrust!

Anyway, with cs12 and 100A ESC as others have mention moves the CG back. It's now 85mm rather than 70ish mm before. Is the CG in the manual correct? If so I'll add weight until I get a CG of 75mm.

You've had 10 SR-71s? I'm sure I must be misreading that. I was thinking of getting an SR-71 kit and putting my own stuff into it. RC Castle has one for $98.00.

That was not a misprint.

I have bought, flown and mostly crashed and destroyed 10 SR-71 64mm airframes. My 9th was my most celebrated and longest-lasting at 54 successful sorties. Blew away the previous record of six on one airframe.

She was my muse, my nemesis. Nothing beat the look and presence in the air. My favorite plane of all-time, I wasn't about to give up so easy. I have a complete Don's Wicked setup and killer LED afterburner kit for sale if interested.

Aros, I am astonished to say the least. 10 SR-71s. That's true dedication. I haven't decided yet about buying one. I won't till I PM you to find out why you went through so many. I've always wanted one but previous experience with the brand has left me somewhat dubious. I've even priced some stuff out and it'll cost me another over $300.00 to get one in the air. I think I'd rather get another F/A-18 first.

Aros: I got it, yes that's a different bird for sure .

Yours sure looked great on the bench and in the air .

Thanks, yeah she was a looker. A part of me will always miss her (or them) but I finally tired of the headaches.

While I got mine about 1 hour ago, took it out of the box.
Surprize , I ordered the kit and paid for the kit but got the ARF
I sent a e-mail to MotionRC and told them their mistake, so now I'm waiting to hear from them, to see what they want to do .
I'm not even planning on starting the kit until April, as I have a few other planes I have to finish first.
It's been in the single digits here, but we had freezing rain that turned to rain and warmed up today to the mid 60's but it will not last .
It is very impressive looking and I think after I do my upgrades it will be a keeper.

Hi Aros :=}
I can not wait to fly her, but taking my time to re-inforce trouble areas and upgardes will make waiting worth it.
Those Guy's & they know who they are, that live in those warm weather places have got it made :=}
