Default Jackal does 180mph!

Here's the video of my Jackal.

HK-4525 520kv
10s TP 3250 45c
HK 12 x 12 plastic prop clipped to 11.5"
Tru Turn prop adapter and spinner adapter set (very nice stuff)
Eflite 60-120 electric retracts
Cut down Robart struts with weak springs from hardware store.
Steve says: I used two elevator servos because there's two holes already made for them. Rudder servo mounted above elevator servos with short pushrod.
I had to Y the rudder and steering servo because there's 10 plugs to plug in and only 9 holes.
CG is in the middle of the range, which seems a bit nose heavy, but you'll have it falling on it's butt if you move it too far aft.
