I use the rates as Avonds suggest. But I only fly with low rates, it's very responsive on ailerons. The high rates is for extreme manuevers.
The canard is mixed in with up elevator only.

ok ,i was affraid to use them with high rates ,because i also have a big jim fox saab viggen with canards and this is very touchy with them
so i put only 5 mm rates on canards with use of elevators
so if you confirm that i could go more , i ll put higher dual rates

When I got mine, I stripped out everything including formers and it weighed 3.3kg with paint.

Or you can measure the CG from the inlet, 358mm.
On mine the former was set to far back and resulted in CG to far back.

Depends on the amps, under 90 amps 5000mah will be enough for 4-5 minute flight. My set-up at the moment has about 93 amps, and I use 5300mah batt. for 4 min flight, leaving about 20% in the packs.
