Welcome to RCGroups!
You have a beautiful Flitz-2. I already stole your pics from Facebook and posted a couple earlier

Just started looking at and assembling the Flitz 2 kit.

A couple of things I noted so far:

- wing-fuse connection is very good, really nice fit - front and rear cowlings fit very well with fuse, almost no seam.
- stab-mount is pre-cut in the back to allow elevator horn access. I pre-installed a tubing for the string exit into fuse before attaching stab-mount to ensure enough clearance for the horn/string when pulling forward.
- Wing is absolutely gorgeous - two-tone paint makes the design pop really well. Surface finish is awesome.
- Slip-on nose cone is really nice, stays firmly in place.

I noted that there is some Teflon-ish tubing included in the Flitz2 parts bag... is this for something in particular or just to use as required for tail-springs, string routing in fuse, etc?

I'll be trying to fit 2 x 188, AR 6260, and 600mah lipo into the fuse - we'll see how it goes. It doesn't appear significantly smaller than normal Flitz fuse from current production models.

Looking forward to getting this one in the air.

Jason, I suspect the teflon tubing is for routing cables under the wing. I personally do not use tubing at all when running control cables. Only small bits near the servo to move the cable to the fuselage wall maybe.

what makes that thing go

For once I took my time kitting one of these out, and I still managed to put the elevator on upside down. I was bumming out about the elevator till I maidened it last night in between a couple rain clouds.

I modified the vert. for rudderless, with weight at 216.7 grams with CG at 67. The handling is very familiar to my original Flitz, the bouyancy, and penetration seems great for the weight.

I'm looking forward to this weekend getting more airtime in, this little bird seems like it will be a treat for sure.
