Flew it today........all I can say is.......


Crap!!!


That thing flies good. It flew like it weighed 25lbs.....1/3 throttle was all it need and only half on the uplines (45's and loops). And no I didn't weigh it....I would say 40lbs actual though. With servos in the tail for rudder and cans it balanced just a touch nose heavy. No bad tendencies and stopped on a dime in the spin and snaps (though I kept holding my snaps too long)
