Default RE: zoom zoom??

Hi Guys,
Flew the ZZ4D some more last night and moved the CG aft. The battery is velcroed on top of the wing, in the center of the wing. In this position, the cg is such that is barely dives towards mother earth when inverted. With the CG in this position, the rudder has become nice, and knife-edge loops are now possible. Also, I've settled on 7% "up-elevator" mix to Left and Right rudder, and 5% opposite aileron to rudder. Thus far, I'm very pleased with the "flying" capabilities of the plane. However, I do wish for maybe 10% more power. The TP 1320 cell (I think), definately outperfoms the Kokam 1500 3cell. I ordered some 3cell 900 packs to see if the lighter weight will help, and a 11.47 instead of the 10.47 prop for the AXI 2212/34.

Thanks,
Jim
