Stinger 64 EDF
Most of my batteries are 1800-2200 20-30c Turnigy from HobbyKing.
I have one 1800 Parkzone Battery. (probably 20C)
I'm flying with A Spectrum DX8.
1.) I see some guys/gals posting problems on here on launch. I know a 20-30C battery is not ideal and a higher rating would be better but will this adversely affect my chances of getting a successful hand launch? I see lots of bad launches and then some people who claim to be flying stock and the plane fly's away easily. I understand you want to throw it into the wind and level or slightly upward at full power. Does the CG typically come out right with a 1800 or 2200 battery? I'd rather not add weight if necessary.
2) My switch on the DX 8 allows 3 settings. What are good settings for mild to wild. I'd like my first few flights to be tame and not to twitchy.
I'd like to setup everything on one switch (ailerons)
I was thinking of doing the following:
Switch position 0= 35% DR Expo 40
Switch position 1= $50% DR Expo 40
Switch position 2= 80% DR Expo 40
I am sorry for the ?s, I dug in a few threads for about 25 minutes but there were so many varied answers. I'm looking for the best setup to minimize risk of crashing on maiden flight.
I know you won't to keep the nose up on landings.
I didn't buy the wheels, that might be a good investment. Does it slow down the plane alot?
Thanks so much!
