So I will wait and try it out before I make a final judgment.

If I rememeber correctly there is a guy on here who did a quick review and I think he said you do have to land hot. Yep here it is: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...=venom+mustang. He said land at 20mph! Wow I bet I am gonna crash my first landing. Anyways i'll get the pics and stuff on the site and I think I am gonna order like 10-20 more for these prices I think they'll sell quick. See ya's.

Hold on, he did update the info on his landing. Seems he didn't get the CG correct on the initial flights.

"The plane did nose up a bit when I flew it last time despite carefully setting the CG where I thought it should be... but I was wrong. I tried mounted the battery pack about 1" farther forward and it made a HUGE difference. The plane is now vastly easier to handle and stunningly precise. Even landing was effortless."

Once you get the CG set right, maybe even Burke can land it

he he, and hopefully me. Efforless landing sounds good . I do remember reading that now. So just make you chave good CG like on a heli right? What do you do rap a rop around the wings . What's the best way to check Cg on an Airplane, cause I really don't want to make a Weight and Balance sheet for my RC Airplane

I use the finger tip method!

Usually a plane will balance somewhere between the LE to the middle of the wing. Place the tip of your index fingers(one under each wing) and when you get it to balance right on your fingertips, that is where the CG is.

Typically the manual will provide a distance from the leading edge which indicates the location of CG. I normally use a permanent marker and put a small dot on the location the manual suggests, then it makes it simple to balance properly. I use the finger tip method also, but you can buy a balancer which holds the plane for you while you move things around to adjust the CG.

Great video Jamie. The quality is stunnning. I love it when you cut off the power and kust let it glide. All you can hear is wind and servos buzzing.

BTW nice landing

Any of you guys know if it is cool to run the AR7000 wihtout the satellite receiver. I don't think it will matter but just want to make sure. I'm gonna throw it on the Mustang Diggs, for now until I get the AR6100.
