Q, Is the nose longer on this plane than the SU?


On the SU, I needed to have my battery, (Gforce 1300 from valuehobby) 75% under the wing for balance when running an Eflite park 400.

Just thought I'd ask.

Tail moment is longer, so the battery needs to be a bit further forward. The geometry of this plane is totally different.

On my SU, the battery is about 75% aft also.

Mine might be OK then. I have HS-65s in the tail. I'll bet I'm going to have my pack pretty far forward... I almost got mine done tonight. I couldn't find one of the HS-56s I had for the ailerons, and got pissed that I had to stop.

That's what I've got sitting here. Looking at the plane, it's pretty serious overkill...

Here's brg34 flying his new Kat indoor at the HobbyTown HobbyPlex in Omaha. It's a tight space, mostly used for indoor car racing and helis. He still does not have the decals on it. This flight was with a 3cell pack, but he also flew it on 2 cells. On 3 cells he's at 13oz.

Mine is all assembled. I'm going out to fly today, and I'll post my thoughts later.

Can you guys all see Quinn laying on the floor in his basement, in the fetal position, following that news?
