I would say around 325...I don't have a small scale. The battery is 65grams heavier than stock and the ESC is slightly heavier, motor is the same.

Makes me happy to see the throttle lock programming being used. I used to own an optic 6 as well which does have a throttle lock button. I also fail to understand why this is not a basic safety...

X-Mas Corsair

The last gift was pulled out of hiding and given to me as a surprise. Apparently the wife worked with my brother to replace my WM Corsair that just didn't want to fly. I am pulling the Parkzone motor...

The servo is o.k.

The servo is o.k. and nearly the same as an E-Flite 75 servo. After some time they do develop some slop. I have flown my E-Flite P-47 now for two years with them in the ailerons without issue.

Perhaps you could pick up a small compatible rx from Wattflyer, RcGroups, or Ebay. I have my rx under the canopy but it is pretty small.

My latest 4 Cell Stryker

Maiden Flight was Sweeet!

Plenty of power on hand launch at half to 2/3s throttle. Very little trim just a bit of elevator as she wanted to climb a bit. Excellent elevator control, turns great, rolls were a bit slow but scale...

I looked up your ESC which shows it has a 2 amp BEC. I agree, you should be fine as long as you have airflow over the ESC since you are not doing 3d with this warbird.
