Haha!! On my p47 I used probably 100 elastics going every which way to hold the canopy on. On top of that, some ran into the canopy...luckily it dries clear so it's not visible really. I was not...

Well that's good news. Glad it works well, ca is a pain in the a** to use, and canopy glue cleans off easily, isn't toxic (will eat through metal I found out though)

Not sure if my canopy glue would hold well enough. Does wood glue work well for the flat hinges?

I'm using the Dubro flat hinges with the six holes on each side. Are these not good hinges to use? They are a bit of a nuisance to install. The wood glue I use would probably make up for the...

I doubt you'll notice anything. Seems to fly the same. If you hold the plane and move it around with factory control horn settings the surfaces move small amounts. Increase the throw from the horns...

I think it would be more efficient have a constant throttle. You can set the nozzle to throttle as a curve, as well as the motor, set to all 100. Should be possible.

I have taken the Inverza 280 for a few flights, nothing too extreme, just some knife edges, inverted flight, hovering (attempting), etc.

Storage mode should automatically balance, but balancing is to allow cells to not overcharge or discharge too much. Typically you want cells 0.01V of each other, or at least that's what I've read.
