Since your initial post, have you had an opportunity to fly it? I would like to hear your experience with it if possible. Did you encounter any difficulties in assembling and setting it up? I noticed you switched out the prop to an 11x8 - are you any concerned it may pull too many amps with that prop? It's really a great looking model for the money. We could only have dreamed of having an airplane with those features, for that price, some years ago.
The 11x8 does pull more amps. It flew very well. Nice speed and great thrust.
Flaps worked great. I'm going to turn up the ailerons throws a bit, but otherwise it controlled very nicely.
Only problem was that the 11" prop was hard to clear the grass on the field I fly at. I will try the stock 10x5" prop to see what that is like, although everyone says it is underpropped with this prop. If that one doesn't work, I'll try an APC 10x7E.
