Wow Either she's really small or your gonna need a bigger car Jeff lol
I've read up on these planes myself and they do carry alot of weight, Seems a good buy for the price. Good luck on the fpv side buddy Its a different way to fly that's for sure.
Ian's the guy to speak to for setups, He knows his stuff on the electronics side He'll keep you right.

Cracking looking plane Jeff, no reports from Fpv`ers yet on it, some have waited over 1 month for it turning up.

The cockpit will only house a 2S lipo though ( without modding ) It does carry a lot of weight which for Fpv is great.

If you need any ideas / help with the fpv side give us a shout

5.8Ghz 25mW video Tx on the plane should be ok
I can't see it causing any problems at the field.

A spotter WILL be required
I need to speak to the BMFA about the Buddy lead though.

either way you should be good to go Very Happy

i have a question about cg.I'm ok with instructions that state say for example 100mm from leading edge.then i go fly and tweak it to my taste.but sometimes they state say 100mm to 120mm.this is were i get a bit lost.wots the difference with say setting up at 100mm with the nose slightly nose down to say setting up at 120mm with nose down.or should i go for say 110mm and nose neutral.

CG should always be set with the Fuse Level
sometimes they quote CG limits e.g. 100 to 120mm

I'd pick in the middle 110mm for the first flight
then fine tune from there.

You got instructions with a HC kit ?
thats new ! king

yes i did get instructions but they are chinenglish lol.on the font page it states 100mm to 120mm and the back cover 45mm to 55mm scratch lol.
thanks for the info Paul i will set it up at 110mm.do i leave it level.as i like slightly nose heavy planes,especially on maidens.

Balance Level
If you want more nose heavy try 105mm

I wouldn't trust those instructions
Check the CG is between 25% - 33% of the Chord (straight wing)

No problem Jeff. lets hope for good weather

I'm not a fan of ail. to elev. mixes
the Pilot should control Yaw during turns imo.
