First TopRC Aspire Sport Jet flew in Israel today.
Maiden flight was super easy, only a few clicks of up trim (nose heavy CG at 180mm) and she flew on rails.
Model is extremely precise and feels amazingly straight in the air!
Control throws:
Ailerons: 18 degrees both ways, 50% Expo
Elevator: 20 degrees both ways, 35% Expo
Rudder: Max throw, 40% Expo
Flaps:
Takeoff: 15 degrees with 2mm down elevator
Landing: 53 degrees with 4mm down elevator
Equipment all performed beautifully from the beginning!

TopRC Aspire flying with my Pulsing Smoke Controller, today in Israel.

This jet is absolutely amazing in aerobatics - smooth and precise! i am VERY impressed by the design.

ATJ 160SV
Cortex Pro
Emcotec Mini 5 (One of the best systems on the market today!)
Blue-Bird BLS-3507 Servos all around

Just a fun flight with CG still nose heavy.
i started with around 180mm and have removed 400g of lead from nose, and she flys better and better.

Will check CG again when i have a chance.

I started with 180mm, with 500g of lead in the nose, and it flew fne but it was way too nose heavy for me.
i removed ALL the lead bit by bit and she flys fantastic now with close to neutral CG.

i havent measured the CG again but 230mm sounds like it should probably be right.
My best advice is start with 200mm and work from there according to your flight preferences.

You can get more info on the TopRC group on Facebook:
