Looks better than she flies, CG is far from acceptable
I ordered a speed build kit for this plane and like many others, have been stuck with the CG ruining the plane. I built it in a day, and I was gone most of the day but I built just as in the video and that was fun and easy. It looked great, but I decided it needed more. So I spray painted it and it looks amazing. It has a navy blue top and white bottom. Really beautiful scheme. I'm using the power pack f with an 800 mAh 3S and it flew like garbage. It balanced right on the 1.5" mark, but flew like a zero missing a wing in wwii. It survived one crash which forced me to add more weight to the front. It took off and flew better than before, but was very underpowered. It climbed very slowly and was sketchy to bank at all. I got a little bit of height, and attempted a loop. It ended up just doing a snap roll and then I tried again and it went into an uncontrollable dive, and that was the end. Upon walking to the crash site, the prop was broken, the front was crinkled, and the wing and the fuse right behind the wing had mostly separated from the rest of the plane. It now lies in two pieces with the wing almost fallen off. Only because I spent roughly 4 hours painting it again I'll try it again. This might be my last purchase from FT. I believe in their cause, but they have to rig these planes in some way, because this is crazy. And I've had years of experience with flying rc planes, so this plane is just a lost cause.
