Finished up my slow ride, got about 15 flights in one day on it, super impressed with the airframe. I had everyone at the field fly it as well! Havenít weighed it yet but the hacker a30-10l with an 11x5.5 on a 3s 2200 is very happy!

Donít think I could get the CG right with that batt. How do you do 15 flights? 15 batteries?

Yes 15 different batteries, and they are as far forward as possible. and super light servos in the tail.

Wow I have 15 planes but no where near that many batts. I used the recommended Tactic 25s in the tail but I did just put a larger motor on now. Wanting for my 4s 2200s to come

Larger motor and batteries might not necessarily be a good solution, this airframe being so light, being able to have a smaller battery, motor, Servos etc helps make it fly better in my opinion and adding a heavier battery and motor might not help. Trying different propeller options that might fit your flying style could work better.

I’m actually going to a 2200 4s versus a 2600 4s and the motor I had was only a 3020 verses I believe the 4220 I think they recommend

Yes I have, it doesnít quite like it like most aircraft. Mainly because it has such little side area. Make sure you use the included sfgs as that will help. It does take a lot of correction.

May be noseheavy. We regularly do knife edge loops, even knife edge square loops, although that last corner is more rounded than the others
