In short.
No.
Not mine anyway.

Nice leaf effect paint job. What did you use as a base coat over the plastic covering?

Hey Driggs
Welcome.

Mine was a bit out but not as much, about ½mm. I'd say check the battery area for cracks in the plastic & check the edges where the wing meets the fuse for unstuck tape,...

Hmm, Yes DH - That might have been easier, next time. I have gone for a bit less down and right thrust - about 1º or so less.

I have it all back together now. Been measuring COG - balances out at...

oops - recalc

oops, forgot the prop is 10x8 not 10x7.

So that gives approx 41mph theoretical air screw speed..
I'd guess more like 30% off that at least - Back to 28mph... Still seems a bit fast.

I was figuring I'd just calculate the ballpark figure by using the prop air pitch speed subtract 20% for drag/colour/altitude/battery V/Radio type etc

and then multiply by 20 and divide by number...
