This isn't a robust or well made product. The ESC is not well sited & has virtually no airflow over it at all. If you ran it with the plane stationary at full or near-full throttle, that would almost certainly fry the ESC and possibly the motor as well. See my thread a bit further up the page... I did have some success with the EFlight Park 400 and a 30A ESC, but you still need to watch your throttle management carefully. This set up has plently of grunt, however the rest of the plane kept falling apart around it! I still have mine but I just can't bring myself to fly it now that I have the Mini Funtana X. (Now THAT'S a great plane!!)

I got the extra 330 used and flew but it seemed to be a handful. Can you tell me where the cg is supposed to be. I added a little weight so it is now right at the main spar, thanks!

Hi Kenneth,

I had the CG on mine at 65mm behind the LE. At that it's a little nose heavy but it stable. If you want to throw it around a bit more just add a few grams of lead near the tail with some double sided tape to make it a bit more twitchy. As above though, you have to fly this plane VERY gently and at low rpm or it will disintegrate. Kind of defeats the pupose of this type of aircraft, doesn't it!! Good luck!!!!

will i got the new one in the mail,it was in perfect condition ,put her together,and could not resit too fly it,instead of mounting the ESC outside or in the cowling,i just cut holes in the foam where the motor mount is,just a test ,i think that supplies enof air,she flew perfectly could not get the knife egde thought ,it seamed like she wanted too go down,may have too set the control arm post in the iner most hole?.,im just wondering if i used a smaller prop what would be a sufficient size,anyone else use a smaller prop?
