Default .25 OS powered Super Impress

Saturday was the maiden flight of an OS .25 powered Super Impress that I put together two nights previous. After a wee bit of trimming I have to say that this plane is insane! For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Super Impress, it's distributed by Global Wattage and is a 20+ oz. cobalt 400 powered electric job. I upgraded all the servos to full size with the exception being the aileron servo which was swapped for a Hitec HS-81 mg. This plane cooks with a capital C! Nice tight axial rolls and quick to respond. I've found my new love! This plane also wants to pull out of my hand vertically when revved up, so I think I might try a verticle hand launch one of these days. It sure "Impressed" the other guys at the field. Just thought I'd pass my experience along. Have a good one.

I put a Norvel .074 with a 6x5prop on my Super Impress. I am going to maiden it this week. I hope it performs well

I was not impressed by the electric version and was going to convert to glow as well. I was thinking of the .15 os. Do you think this would be too little? What prop are you using with the .25? Did you have to add weight to the tail?

thanks
