It flew great as a pusher. Got the AUW down to 28 oz. with a Turnigy 2217-16 23A motor =450 a 1300ma 20c 4s Zippy Li-Po on a 7x5 APC E prop .... It's light enough to fly slow and although it doesn't quite have verticle thrust it's plenty fast for my liking. Maidened it Monday and put 4 flights on it then put 5 more on it yesterday. I get 8 min. flight times on the 1300ma battery . If it was a twin 64mm EDF I'ld be lucky to get 4 min flights with a 2200 battery. I ended up with a little down thrust on the motor stick so I made the nose gear wire 3/8ths " longer to help it rotate.It started tail heavy but we kept moving the battery forward untill it's a full length forward from where we started.
