Great choice on your plane. Here is my advice:
- Look over the wings for warping before you put it together. My first kit had pretty warped wings so I got a new one mailed to me. Some of the kits are like that to a degree and still fly fine unless it is bad like mine was (reportedly)
- If you plane to hand launch, bump the throttle up to a out 70-80% and give it a gentle but firm toss. It should be smooth like silk.
- Trim as needed at a high altitude. Mine liked to turn very hard right initially and caused me to land on its canopy on its maiden (I also wasn't used to its speed, so pilot error is very likely the issue in my case).
Another thing to keep in mind are that the CG should be perfect with the stock battery or something with comparable weight and size.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Hopefully one of us will have the answer or be able to point you in the right direction.
