What sort of a plane is it? Generally, it should be okay but do not expect great verticals.

Its a 60% copy of GP Dazzler
It was 15oz RTF but i needed to add the extra weight to get the CG right. the battery (3s 850) is in the front compartment in hine sight i should have made the front of the fuse about 3/4 to an inch longer i think i could then move the motor and battery out more and it would have balanced.I could run a gws9050 and get 18oz but i'd be on the edge of 10amps at 9.5 so i'll try the 8040 and see what happens.

Here's a pic.

Once you are moving in the air you will be fine. NO prop hanging. Not enough to stop in reverse.

Enjoy.
