RCRCM Carbon Sunbird

I got this used but in excellent shape.
AUW: 36.5oz
CG: 80mm
MKS 6100's all around on a 4 cell AA Eneloop pack with Spektrum "Carbon Fuselage" receiver.
I was going to switch to a Hitec rec'r but it doesn't really fit anywhere so the project stalled until recently when I bit the bullet and bought a Gen 2 DX8 radio.
Programming and channel setup is odd but I'm getting there.

Update: Plane flew great this past weekend. Zero clicks of any trim needed and crow settings were good. Plane flies great on the front side with a predictable stall unless you are really yanking on the ele with high rates.
DS was smooth with very little ballooning at higher speeds.
I took a few landing approaches but got her down safely. Still need to get used to using my left thumb.
