      Thanks Paul.

      High confidence in having this ready for Jet Jam this upcoming week. Need to complete weight and balance, and try to print/rig the flap track fairings. I can fly without the flap fairings, but would give that final touch.

                  Thanks Steve!

                  Here is the full flight video captured by Orvie (Wayne). With the 2x3700mAH 45C packs, I had a flight time of about 2 minutes, and used 25% of the battery capacity. I do think I can get 6 minutes easily with this setup. Most of the flight was between 1/3 and 1/2 throttle, and the landing was with take-off flaps, so it was a bit hot. The suspension has the springs such that they are almost fully pre-loaded when the plane is static on the ground. This coupled with the dave brown lite flite wheels made it seem like the landing was very cushioned, and there want a concern of the plane getting bounced back into the air due to built up spring energy.

                  I have some ideas about weight reduction using a 0.3mm nozzle for certain areas as well as thinning out the stringers throughout the fuselage by 0.4mm. This all would give close to 200g of weight savings. Flying with a single 5000mAH pack or changing the power setup to 4S 3700mAH with 2800kV motors would be another option, each shaving another ~360g from the AUW
