Default Shrike Question?

I've been reading a lot of post from many experienced Shrike Pilots and most have been very good. I'm almost finished with my Shrike .10 with a .20fp. My question is, should you set the throw rates per the Manufactors specs or not? Secondly, Are you guys launching at your high rate settings? I'm sure your landing at high rates!

I certainly appericate your help,

Charlie

Its a good Idea to run the OEM specs first, then after getting used to it, set them to your tastes. Its a mint plane, 15 roll passes are a blast!
