      It always helps to have the right amount of room required to fly! Good flights! I was lucky enough to see the real deal fly in Nellis back in November. It is such a pretty plane!
      I have way too many planes to list off... But I love to fly them all! the 80-90mm Jets are my newest addiction! Also check out my youtube channel for TONS of flying footage. https://www.youtube.com/user/gooniac33

        Thanks, oh man it makes all the difference in the world! I think about all the years I forced my giant scale stuff on that little school parking lot, not realizing I had an 1,800 foot paved runway just 11 miles from my house!

        Would love to see the 1:1 in action!

                      Hey Aros,
                      Did you go with factory settings on the throws and where did you set the CG. 165mm?
                      Thanks.

                        I wound up at 165mm CG but most seem to be flying her at 170mm. I found the factory throws WAY too high for me personally. Here's my radio settings:

                        DUAL RATES

                        Aileron Low: 55% - Expo 50%

                        Aileron Mid: 70% - Expo 50%

                        Aileron High: 100% - Expo 50%


                        Elevator Low: 65% - Expo 40%

                        Elevator Mid: 75% - Expo 40%

                        Elevator High: 100% - Expo 40%


                        Rudder Low: 55% - Expo 30%

                        Rudder Low: 75% - Expo 40%

                        Rudder Low: 100% - Expo 50%

                        Throttle Cut Activated

                        Timer set for 3:00. I always landed around the 3 minute mark. I think the most I ever stretched it was 3:30. Don't ever stretch it past that or risk LVC which would be very, very BAD.

                            Hi everyone, I have a question about the CG on this beautiful jet. I made my maiden flight today and I'm lucky I didn't bring it home in a trash bag. It was almost impossible to control at anything below 3/4 throttle. It was very pitch sensitive. I had CG set at 175mm which I measured with gear down and the aircraft right side up, is this the right way to set it up? Thanks
