Hi Jerry looks like you ready to have some fun. Power + air+ 540 = fun. How did it balance out? with the servo in the rear? I am finishing up one now Let us know how it flies after it's madden. Good luck Steve

Hi Jerry,
How did you run your rudder/elevator servo leads to the wing radio compartment? Is that an external channel on the side of the fuse for them that I see? I am struggling with my leads.
Thanx

Does the motor have a touch of down-thrust or am I fooled by the third pic? Is it supposed to have some down-thrust?

Hi, Lenz rc
I moved the wing back in the body 3/4 of an inch to allow for the servo wieht. It balanced out good when I moved the wing. The CG was one inch behind the spar. It is not the OMP all though it does seem to be faster in the manuevers. Madden flight was very good,but not sure if I like it or not. Flat spins fall fast. It's got a lot of wing rock. I'm going to have to fly it more to give better detail. Jerry

Hi, GarySS

I put a chanel on the left outside of the body from the servos to the bottom of the wing. I put a hole in the wing so that the servo wires could get to the receiver. Here is a picture.
