Congrats on the successful maiden! Really looked rock steady and can fly slowly for landing. Looks great in the air too; very unusual silhouette.

It is light enough. If you can get the CG close enough to survive the maiden, you can decide later if it needs a bigger fan, even if it is starved for air a bit.

Speaking of CG, any thoughts?...

Late in the game but any chance you could squeeze in a 64 mm fan? Significantly more thrust than a 55. More battery though. What is the approximate wing loading?

IIRC, hold the trainer switch while you power on the tx. The model number will be whatever was up when the TX was last turned off.

Run both throttles from one receiver (the left one sounds better) and calibrate the ESC's so they stop and start more or less at the same time.

I lost three planes in a week, two on one day last summer. Before that, I hadn't crashed a plane for a year and a half!

All planes have an expiration date; you just don't know when it is.

You'll have a wing loading of over 44 oz/sq ft.(!) which is really heavy for a smallish model. Doing everything you can to get the weight down is a good idea.
