The second one I got a bit scurred and ripped back the elevator, which was totally unnecessary... but you get the gist.


    It's a bit far away, but I'm just grabbing it by the side of the fuse - thumb on the bottom and 4 other fingers on the bay lid - as far back as I can right where the nose and wing meet.

    I'm pretty sure this is 2d. I launch manual until I'm 110% dialed in and not planning on touching control settings again, then launch in 2d pretty much always unless I forget to click it in. Regardless, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two - that's exactly how it flys off in manual as well. The first second or two are nice and flat and the control surfaces have to authority because there's no airspeed. As long as you get a nice flat throw you're good to go. It's also a natural movement, meaning I don't try to throw at any specific angle. Just grab and rip it and it goes that way automatically.

    I agree... I have tried several, and your launch is the most reliable. You can get a stronger toss on it without torquing it off in some bad direction.

    4S - more choices in packs and probably better pricing too. Current draw can be high. KVed, Propped, ESCed and wired properly it will work.
    5S - Chris' combo hits the sweet spot for efficiency and thrust. Packs not as available and usually pricier. It kicks butt - we know.
    6S - More choices on packs, and you may have some in your arsenal. Make sure to get the combination of kV, prop and ESC rite. Test, test and test. If not, it may work but efficiency or thrust or both may be off.

    Did anyone ever make a diagram to show CG location?
    I thought there was one here on the first few pages.
