is the stock cg 115mm a good flying point for the plane over all.

Finally found time to finish this RA scheme version for best buddy Trevor. Weather was better than forecast, so I nipped out for a test flight...24 knot wind in the end, so did not get to fine tune the initial set up and start setting the iGyro, but no trim so far. Timer is set for 7.30 from gear up.

Thanks for all your efforts Davey, Xcaliber flew really nice as to be expected with your setup. Looking forward to more flying and Jet Power not far off either.

Trevor.
