15mm thick battery ...

63x32x15 Would fit just fine
63x32x25 would require some cutting ... ( Which would be ok )
But the weight ?
That would be a lot of battery for a 600mm Wing .

Received this wing. In a wing and elevons plastic spars are already glued. Is it enough, or maybe add carbon spar? One person also wrote glued servos in the middle of a wing, but not in the fuselage, and flight control became better. What do you think about it?

On my last one , I put the servos in the wing ( move CG forward ) ..
But if you plan to use a larger battery , then you want some weight further back to counter the battery .

If you plan to hot dog , then yeah ! Stiffening might help .
But if you just plan to fly ( lets call it ) normal , then it should be fine as is .
Build it to purpose .

I finished building my (after 2 years) last week.

I put the servos in the fuse, but that location is inadequate. I am going to move them to the wings for better control authority, but that might take another 2 years

Fly it !
Play with the CG ..
If you move the CG back a little , you should make it more lively .
If it feels overly lively , just add expo till it calms down ..

Maidened mine today. Built it as a 950mah 2S + 1306/3100kv DYS powered. Man, this thing really waggles when you're off the power. Has anyone else experienced this? It's also super sensitive on the pitch/elevator. . . can you guys confirm this is just the way it flies or recommend some sort of fix. My feeling is the size/resistence of the wing fences has something to do with it. Has anyone tried fences made from a different material?

Flight time is excellent with this setup. I ran through about 8 different props to see which were good performers for my build. Ended up with an APC 640 speed that I'd cut down to 5" back before HQ was making mini props for quads. There's just something about the APC foil that really suits wings I think.

I also tried a standard 530 Gemfan(old school orange), 530/40HQ, 645HQ, 630HQ, 3x5 old HQ. The old standard 530 Gemfan miniquad prop worked well and flew very quietly. I even flew a 6x5x3. Sounded like a little turbine but got the motor too hot.

All in all, it was a good session. It would be cool to instal an AS3000 AS3X stabilization module in it, just to quiet it down and extend the flight window to days with a little wing. As everyone has already commented, she's pretty quirky in wing.

Yeah , depending on CG !
The further back the more unstable / sensitive to elevator a wing will be .

Options = Move CG forward .
Rates - cut down elevator movement
Exponential - try 30 to 60 percent expo to see if it will tame any sensitivity .

A lot of the time if the CG is back , any stick input can effect ( Elevator / Aileron ) ..
Expo will help neutralise the stick around the middle ..

Waggle off power ? - Mine do not do that ..
If its windy , that might explain it or it's maybe the CG
