Does anybody have any experience with the Exceed F-5

Hi Jm, I hope that I can help. I think we are talking about the 70 mm edf with retracts. I have the Banana hobby F-5E mfg by BlitzRC. The plane balances perfect with a 4 cell 2200mah with the gear DOWN. You can check that by measuring 8 1/4 inches back from where the wing's leading edge strack meets the air intake. I have been flying mine for 2 seasons and love it. It may not be the fastest jet, but it lands fantastically and rolls like a drill bit. Keep the aileron travell to a min. I have the Swiss paint version. If you fly of off grass, I sugess you put a stop block behind the nose gear to prevent the plastic from breaking where the rod goes into the base plate. It flys best on a battery with a C rating of AT LEAST 30c, 40 is beter
