Factory. Reality is that it needs more air to breath. The 210 has more that 1:1 thrust to weight but even at full throttle backs down pretty fast. I think at low/0 airspeed and full throttle it...

Strange. Mine lined right up. Dumb questions. Can you mount the turbine on the bottom side of the rails? Is it possible the turbine mount is flipped over or something and not on the correct side?

What type of jets are you looking for? Sport jets usually have a lighter wing loading. My sport jets are around 40oz/sq ft. That said, size matters. A small jet at 40 will feel heavier than a big...

I have about 10 flights on mine with the stock clamping wing hold on. That is scary. I have the thrust vectoring and fly it fairly aggressive. I have had no issue.
