Not knowing the Vector yet, does it store the model setup memory? So when you put it back into an already setup model, you can just load the setting straight back into it. I can do this should I wish with the V-Bar's on my heli's. once setup, simply make a copy of the model settings in your PC. Then any time you like, you can just upload any saved file and it will fly just like before.

Once you set it up on a pc, you backup / save the config file. Then you just flash it with the appropriate config before going out if you swap it. You can have an infinite amount of perfectly tuned planes and a single vector. Just plug it in, load whatever model and off you go.
The 44 might get an osd, but won't have a controller. The 63 will have a vector as well as the Skywalker that I'm dusting off and my next tricopter build that's coming will most likely end up with one. It's nice having a large multi's with an advanced controller.
Bought an eagle tree guardian for the 44. We'll see how it does.
Just got my Hardcore 44 straight from the man himself! I had a couple questions though.
What're you guys doing for the servo holes? You punch out the foam block, put in the chloroplast cover for the underside, and then use part of the block for the servo to sit on? And what servos are you guys spec'ing? I was thinking of the EMAX metal gear digital servo, but not sure how much servo I need - never built anything other than the FPVWRA spec wing before.
And for the tiny winglets/fins on the wings. I got eight total - four are one height, and four are shorter vertically. What's the placement for these. Is it the four taller ones on top of the wing and the shorter on the bottom, or is it the two taller vertical ones towards the middle and the shorter height ones toward the wingtips mirrored on the top and bottom? And given the positioning holes that are drilled for them, the ones towards the wing tips are too long - are you guys cutting them too to make room for the elevon to move?
Any help would greatly be appreciated!
Got the chance to go out today and do a maiden flight of the Hardcore 44. It really flies nice. I launched with my goggles on with no issue. Here is the boring video as i was just flying around the field doing some trimming.

I know the feeling mate, I run my own business, got 2 young daughters, plus building an extension on our house leaves me with very little time. With 4 wings arriving tomorrow, I have 1.3 gear to buy (the Singularity's showed up today) and a DLV3 plus 4-5 rx's, then Vectors......Expensive times!!

Anyone gotten real world data on the recommended motors? I just a saw a video with the 2814/1700 drawing ~60 amps. That's more then ecalc predicts and more then the 2217/2300 should pull at races. I won't fly flat out that often, but I'm trying to gain efficiency at >80mph for longer fun flights. 2221/1860 is also a option I think.
